SPS/FBR Annual Trail Run/Potluck – August 10

This Sunday, August 10th, is the annual South Philly Striders/Fishtown Beer Runners trail run and potluck, at Valley Green Inn.  As usual, this trail run will be a fun run on a marked course.  Run, walk, skip, jump one loop, two or ten on the trail.  Finish to a potluck picnic.

Let’s try to grab the picnic tables in the shade by the water the same as last year.   As a reminder, there is an upper and lower parking lot.  Injured or lazy and can’t run, come walk, bike or drive to the event!

This event is also a way to celebrate ALL the August birthdays among us.
