Running in the Philadelphia area continues to grow and grow. From the races to beautiful trails and places to run to great groups, we consider ourselves very lucky to be surrounded by such a wonderful running community. Here's who we're running with this week!

Every Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. in SIX cities around the country (Philadelphia, New York, Boston, San Diego, Portland, San Francisco), people gather to run and have fun.
The main event is our Run & Chug which was started over SEVEN YEARS ago in San Francisco and has grown to many other cities. The premise is simple: meet every Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. at a different bar in Philadelphia, go for a 4-5 mile run, and then meet back at the bar to have fun!
All running paces are welcome and the emphasis is just on making it back to the bar to get to know your fellow runners. We have two non-negotiable rules: NO DRAMA and NO CLIQUES. At a time when nearly everyone has a crazy schedule and is so attached to their social media, why not take a few hours, meet some new friends offline and get some cardio in at the same time. Whether you’re new to the city or just want to escape the humdrum of everyday life, come on out for a run.
The Run & Chug community is national, established, and extremely supportive. You won't regret seeing what we have to offer you as a runner, Philadelphian, and new friend.
