[5/2] YIP Run Club

  • Philadelphia Runner Center City 1601 Sansom Street Philadelphia, PA, 19103 United States

Join the Young Involved Philadelphia (YIP) Run Club for our May run to ULIFTU & Crossfit CC! CrossFit Center City is excited to welcome YIP to our gym at 1229 Chestnut St in the basement of the Adelphia House apartment building! Since launching in 2008, we're the only CrossFit gym with an entirely full-time staff of experienced coaches in Philadelphia. Well beyond CrossFit, we believe in healthy movement and our diverse course offerings reflect that. From gymnastics, to olympic lifting to endurance focused training - we have something for everyone and done in a way that will leave you challenged, stronger and part of an amazing new community.

We also believe that community doesn't just stop at our doors. We have a nonprofit arm of CFCC, UliftU which prepares formerly homeless and incarcerated individuals for careers in the fitness industry. We also then run programming in parts of Philadelphia that wouldn't normally have access to healthy options. Multiple times per week, our members are running fitness sessions and receiving a stipend for their time, paid by UliftU in North Philadelphia. We're making the skills of CrossFit accessible to everyone because we know that they work in battling preventable disease.

You can learn more about CFCC and UliftU at their upcoming fundraiser on Saturday, May 13th at 7pm at CrossFit Center City!

The run will begin at Philadelphia Runner at 16th and Sansom at 6:30 p.m. and run for a few miles before ending at ULIFTU & Crossfit CC in Center City to learn more. We’ll get a tour and ask some questions! All paces welcome!

Please note that there is no bag drop, and don't forget to tag your photos with #YIPRuns!
