Running through the winter is tough. It's cold, the paths are covered in snow and ice, and the shorter hours of daylight force us to run in the dark. 

So, why get out of your warm bed to run in the winter? To put it simply, running in winter will make you a better runner. Oh, and let's not forget to mention the most important thing: It's more fun to run with friends! 

As the temperatures drop, our group runs are just heating up! Join our Winter Break Running Series and get ahead start on your training for theBlue Cross Broad Street Run and other spring races. Each Saturday we will meet at 9AM in Philadelphia Runner:

1/20: PR Center City
1/27: PR Glen Mills

All paces and faces are welcome to join - Team Philly membership not required! Check the Team Philly Runs website for more information about training with the team in 2018 and how you can join.

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.
