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.

Change to Strawberry Mansion Six Mile loop

Please note: we are making an official change (well, as official as you can get with this running club) to our Strawberry Mansion Six Mile Loop. The previous route involved going down the scary stone stairway and then crossing Kelly Drive on a semi-blind turn. Instead of doing that, please proceed uphill and upstream past the stone stairway and then down the driveway for the Dell Music Center, which puts you at a safer spot to cross on Kelly Drive.

This makes a lot more sense if you look at it, so I've added it, in detail, to the club main map, which can be found here: You have to really zoom in on the area around Strawberry Mansion Bridge to see this, but if you do you will see this new routing in detail.

Big thanks to Tom and Carole for pointing this out!
