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.

Speedy Thursdays are now Hilly Thursdays, effective Thursday, March 18!

Thursday Speed Work is switching to Thursday Hill Work, starting this coming Thursday, March 18.

Same meetup time: 6:30pm

Same meetup place: bottom of the Art Museum steps, on the right, by the sign with the museum's hours.

Same running club that always welcomes everyone and never cancels any of its runs, ever, no matter what, except in case of global pandemic.

There's two Hill Work workouts: "Short Hills" and "Long Hills". Short Hills are 10 short steep hills up and down the face of Lemon Hill that is directly across the street from the boathouses. Long Hills are two out and backs up to Girard from the kooky three-point intersection about 300 feet up the hill from Lloyd Hall and then two loops, one clockwise and one counterclockwise, around the face of Lemon Hill that faces the boathouses. Generally we alternate between those two workouts from one Thursday to the next.

I hope to see you all this Thursday for Hilly Thursdays!
