[10/28] Glen Mills Trail Run

Join us for a group trail run through the scenic Brandywine Creek State Park and First State National Monument! This trail running group meets every other Sunday morning in the Smith Bridge Road parking lot on Ramsey Road (click here for map) - enter Smith Bridge Parking Lot, FSNHP into Google maps.

We love running trails and want to share some of our favorite awesome trails with you - especially sections of the park that don't get used very often. It's a great intro to trail running, the Brandywine Creek Park Area, and a chance to meet fellow runners.

We'll head out from the parking lot and run a challenging, but fun, 7 to 8-mile loop on the trails throughout the park. The group trail run is no drop (seriously, we won't leave you behind), FREE and all are welcome to join. What does no drop really mean? We will wait at the tops of hills and turns to make sure that no one gets left out in the woods. If the group does happen to break apart, there will be someone in the front and the back that knows the route so that you don't get lost.

[10/14] Monster Milers Fun Run

Do you like dogs? Do you like running? 

This run's for YOU! Join us for a 3ish mile fun run with an adoptable running buddy and The Monster Milers the second Sunday of every month starting from Philadelphia Runner Center City at 10:30AM. Post run, enjoy 15% off your purchases back in the store!

These events are opened to the public and strictly social. All who are interested are welcome to participate. There is no need to be a current or even future Monster Miler volunteer. We just want the chance to get together with other Milers, some rad Philly runners, and help to exercise and showcase an adoptable running buddy from one of our shelter partners to participating runners and potential adopters as we make our way through the city. If you cannot make it to our Sunday runs, just check on our FB events schedule to make sure there haven't been any changes due to scheduling conflicts.

Not familiar with The Monster Milers? We are a group of volunteer runners trained to take shelter dogs throughout the city out for runs, getting them out of the kennel and shelter environment and helping to keep them mentally and physically healthy while awaiting their forever families! 

If you have questions about other Monster Miler Events or how to get more deeply involved in our volunteer programs, check us out on FB (facebook.com/themonstermilers), at our website (www.themonstermilers.org) OR email info@themonstermilers.org!
