WHAT TO EXPECT: We will complete a TRAIL run throughout the nooks and crannies of the Belmont Plateau and Chamounix trails. There will be a 3 mile and 6 mile option – you can play it by ear and see what feels right as we are running. We’ll pause at a few points to make sure the group remains intact. The runs will be lead by either John Goldthorp of Fix Your Run or Alon Abramson of the West Philly Runners.
WHAT TO WEAR: Wear typical running clothes and be prepared to get a little muddy. Trail running shoes are advised, but not required. You may appreciate the extra traction.
WHAT TO BRING: We ask that you bring your own water bottle and water! If you carpool – you can store it in someone’s car during the run. If you would like to bring a friend or two – that is fine!
PARKING: Bike parking takes some extra creative maneuvering –so allow about 5-10 minutes of ‘locking time’ if you plan to bike!
If you choose to drive directly there – here is the exact spot we will be parking:https://www.google.com/maps/dir//39.9866646,-firstname.lastname@example.org,-75.2092998,271m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m3!4m2!1m0!1m0
After exiting I-76 and going uphill on Montgomery Dr. for 200m it’s the first right turn. We’ll meet in that parking lot.
