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.

Thursday Hill Work is now Thursday Speed Work, effective Thursday, September 24

Thursday Hill Work is now Thursday Speed Work, effective Thursday, September 24.

Due to the lack of lighting on Lemon Hill, we are making our seasonal switch from hills to speed this week.

Same meetup time; 6:30pm.

Same meetup place; bottom of the Art Museum steps, on the right.

New this year, we'll be doing our 1/4 mile splits on MLK instead of Kelly Drive in order to take advantage of the open to runners/closed to cars road.

The workout consists of a 3/4 mile warm-up followed by eight 1/4 mile splits back and forth along MLK and then a 3/4 mile cool-down back to the Art Museum.

As always, everyone is welcome. You don't need to be "fast" to come to Speed Work. If you're slow, you'll get faster. If you're already fast, you'll get even faster.

Your Next Race & Date: Hmm, maybe some day
