Philly Runners -- Welcome


Welcome to our Philly Runners forum. This message board is provided for running-related discussion in the Philadelphia area and around the world. You are welcome to start your own topics and reply to others.
You don't need to post only running-related items, but commercial interests don't have a business being on here (unless you're trying to sell your used treadmill, for example). We don't have "rules" but will try to use our best good-faith judgment. 

Please do not list the full name of anybody other than yourself. Please use first names only or first name plus first letter of last name. Messages that include full names will be deleted. 

When starting a topic for an event with a specific date, please list the date of the event in the subject line. For example: "Media 5 Miler Friday June 17".

Some posts will be deleted after a while due to space limitations. Have fun, and please be sure to visit our main website for more information on our club and more running-related information.

Volunteering for RunFest Sunday June 3

This is the event/race formerly known as the ODDyssey Half-Marathon. This is also one of the "volunteering" gigs that gives money to the club. If you're not running this race, please consider signing up to help out. There will, of course! be a barbecue afterwards for all racers and volunteers. The barbecue will be near the Please Touch Museum (and is posted here as a separate event), but the volunteering may take place anywhere along the race course. Post here that you'd like to help out and I will be in touch in the days before the race with exact details. Thanks!

Please consider signing up to volunteer at RunFest on Sunday June 3. We will likely be manning the on-course games, which is always a lot of fun! And your favorite running club gets money when we provide people to help out. So, please help out at RunFest and help keep Philly Runners free!

Re: Volunteering for RunFest Sunday June 3

Carole and I are in - we replied 'going' on the facebook invitation and apparently you didn't get it... Let us know details when you get a chance.
