Bookin’ for Lookin’ Bridge Run and Fundraiser – March 25

The Wednesday, March 25 Bridge Run will be a special fundraiser for Bookin’ for Lookin’.  The Bookin’ for Lookin’ race, which takes place on April 19 at Council Rock High School in Newtown, supports an important cause: to raise awareness and funds to help cure blindness.  The race supports two fantastic organizations: Foundation Fighting Blindness (FFB) and Bucks County Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (BCABVI).  Mark McCowan is a member of both Achilles and Fishtown Beer Runners.

As usual, we’ll run the bridge out and back, then we’ll head to 2nd Story Brewing Company (2nd Street and Chestnut Street) for a special happy hour fundraiser. Donate $5 for Bookin’ for Lookin’ and enjoy the brewpub’s select $4 beers for the evening. There will also have a race discount code for all participants.  The fun starts at 6th and Race at 6:30 p.m. If you’re not feeling hilly, feel free to come straight to the bar at 7pm. Hope you can join us!

Annual New Year’s Day/Mummers Day Parade Run – 8:30 a.m.

As is our annual tradition to ring in the New Year, we will have a Mummers Parade Setup Fun Run on Thursday, January 1, at 8:30 a.m.  Instead of Front & South, we will start in front of the Mummers Museum (1100 S 2nd Street) at 2nd and Washington.  Just as in prior years, we will run by a few of the Mummers warehouses as they prepare to march down Broad Street, but this time, we plan on swinging up to Logan Square, where the parade sets will be located for this year’s parade.  Be sure to wear your golden sneakers, feathers, and other pieces of flair.  Post-run reception hosted by Amy Papendorf.
