On Friday, January 1, we will have our annual Mummers Day Parade setup run. We will meet at 8 a.m. in front of the Mummers Museum at 2nd and Washington. We’ll then venture down Two Street to 3rd and Jackson to run past some Mummers clubs in the heart of South Philly. We’ll then go down to Broad Street and up to 16th and JFK, where many of the other clubs are setting up. Total distance is 4.2 miles. Fun run rules apply.
Once again, the South Philly Striders and Fishtown Beer Runners will run the streets of South Philly to enjoy the holiday lights for the Annual Holiday Lights Run. Last year, we had about 500 folks join in the fun.
The run starts Thursday, December 10th at Broad and Oregon at 7 PM, where there will be a food drive led by Len DeProspo. Please donate canned and other non-perishable food to benefit Philabundance, which provides food to approximately 65,000 people per week in the Delaware Valley.
The run ends at American Sardine Bar (18th and Federal), where we will celebrate, Fishtown Beer Runners-style. The route will be posted soon. Everyone, including friends from other running clubs, is encouraged to come out for this event. Feel free to wear bells, lights, and holiday costumes.
UPDATE (12/7/2015): This year’s new route can be found here.
