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 Marathon, Half-Marathon, 8K and Expo is now open -- Nov 22, 23, 24

It seems I get this email earlier and earlier every year.

Volunteering for the Philly Marathon (and Half-Marathon, 8K and Expo) is now open. Many of us choose to volunteer for medal distribution at the marathon, the early 6-11am time slot. I already signed up for that. But you can sign up for whatever you like.

You can sign up as part of Philly Runners, but finding Philly Runners in the list is a huge pain and if you can't find us it doesn't really matter.

Sign up now, because the slots do get taken. Nov 24 for the marathon, Nov 23 for the half-marathon and 8k, Nov 22 & 23 for the Expo.

Please note this year the way the categories are organized is a bit different: medal distribution for the full marathon is right below medal distribution for the half, whereas in previous years all the volunteering slots for the half were listed and then all the slots for the full.
