    Broad Street Run Tips - Race Needs

    by Lionel Brahim Brodie III


    Broad Street! Life happened, and you're now hustling to prepare your Race Day fuel and fit? We got you! Here's a quick checklist to make sure you have everything you need before you hop on that free subway ride headed towards Broad Street & Fisher Avenue this Sunday.



    1. There is still a little time to get into a new pair of shoes if you'd like. I'm a "break them in the day before the race" person myself. Altra is a race sponsor.....would be a good look! New models such as the Experience Flow and Escalante 4 have just hit our store walls (and online).




    2. Don’t know what to wear under your rain poncho (it's not gonna rain.....let's keep saying it)? You can always rep Philadelphia Runner. Tons of pre-race, race, and post-race styles to choose from.....including our limited-edition 20th Anniversary Collection!




    3. Purchase a hydration supplement. Regardless of the weather, hydrating is key. Especially if you're layering up to combat the rain (it's not going to rain) and/or wind. 



    4. Nutrition is ALWAYS essential. Make sure you stock up for that last easy run, your shakeout (with us and Altra, right?), and of course…..race day!


    5. Don’t forget very important accessories such as sockshats, and sunglasses.



    6. Body Glide. Trust me. And…..you’re welcome.



    7. Need a new watch? Want a new watch? Yes.....


    8. If you are like me and want new footwear for every big race (I purchased a pair TO CHEER!!!!!)…..check out some of the new releases highlighted on MPR. That's #MYPHILLYRUN BLOG if this is your initial visit with us. Look for articles beginning with 'Launch Day' or 'Launch Season'.



    9. Have a good time. Walking, jogging, running, and/or racing should be fun.
