Discover the incredible trails of West Fairmount Park with the Fairmount Park Conservancy with a 3-mile and 6-mile running option. Guided trail runs are FREE for Fairmount Park Conservancy members (including our team of “Park Champion” Broad Street Runners) and $10 for non-members.
What to Expect: We will complete a trail run with a 3-mile and 6-mile option throughout the nooks and crannies of the Belmont Plateau and Chamounix trails. We’ll likely stop at a few points to make sure the group remains intact. This run 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 (they can register on site)!
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.
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.
