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.

Broad Street Run volunteering!

Broad Street Run volunteering!
YES we need people! If not racing, please volunteer with us, it's the 8th (?) year that Philly Runners is sending people. Here's the link:
http://volunteers.marathonguide.com/volu…/BroadStreetRun.cfm
Note the following:
1. Experience: List any previous water stop (or other race) volunteering.
2. Sponsor organization: select Virginia Tech Alumni (yes, even if it's not you; this is how they track us all since we pair with them).
3. Running club name: this is where you type Philly Runners
4. Volunteer job: scroll to Sunday May 5 and check Water Station - Jackson.
The rest of it should be self-explanatory. If you need to arrive later or leave earlier, that's okay, just coordinate with me. Happy to answer any questions as well. I will be there + at our post-run barbecue!

Re: Broad Street Run volunteering!

A few other notes:
This is a Gatorade/water stop. We will be given everything needed including gloves (and all you can drink water & Gatorade!) and a race shirt. My friend Chris (Virginia Tech alum) who captains our section of the stop will bring girl scout cookies. I usually bike in and lock up my bike in my sight, or you can take SEPTA (Snyder stop), or drive (enter the Broad & Snyder high school parking lot from Snyder or Jackson). If we get enough volunteers (which is why we partner with Virginia Tech) we get a stipend that pays for our website and message board. If you've got Philly Runners apparel, please wear it!
