SPS/FBR Holiday Lights Run – December 10

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.

Heather Wins Tussey Mountainback 50 Miler

This past weekend, veteran SPS runner Heather Hoechst took on the grueling Tussey Mountainback 50 Mile Ultramarathon and emerged victorious.  Facing a talented field, Heather used her many years of experience of navigating the hilly course to finish in 7 hours 5 minutes and 53 seconds.  The time was over a half hour faster than her prior course best.
