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.

Barbecue! Saturday, August 1

We will be having a hybrid barbecue/BYO picnic on Saturday, August 1.

Location to be determined.

This barbecue coincides with the start of the distance event of the Mayor's Cup. Our captains Jess & Jeanine will have more info on that for those of you participating in Mayor's Cup. This event here is meant only to get RSVPs for the barbecue. Everyone is welcome, even if you're not participating in Mayor's Cup.

I will be providing hamburgers & bratwursts, buns, condiments, plastic silverware, plastic plates and individually bottled water. And veggie burgers if you RSVP as veggie.

*** Anything else that you want to eat you need to bring. *** Please do not bring food to share. *** If you're planning on coming, but you're going to bring everything for yourself that you want to eat, then you don't need to RSVP.

This barbecue is offered with special pandemic pricing of only $5, as opposed to the usual $15, because I won't be providing a whole lot.

More info regarding location will be posted here in the next week.
