To Do: Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon Training Kickoff Party

Log some miles then celebrate the official start of training season at Philadelphia Runner

All right, everyone running the Rock ‘n’ Roll Philly Half Marathon, it’s time to start training! Race day isn’t until September 15th, but to help you gear up, Rock ‘n’ Roll Philly is hosting a three-mile fun run/party next Tuesday. At 6 p.m., meet in front of Philadelphia Runner’s 16th and Sansom store and get going. The event also includes:

  • A sneak peak reveal of the half marathon finisher medal
  • Raffle prizes
  • A Brooks running-shoes giveaway to the most patriotically dressed runner (this is your chance to rock the Uncle Sam costume!)
  • Special in-store discounts to Philadelphia Runner
  • Free Lite Choice low-cal ice cream

Sounds like a real party! And, hey, the running can’t hurt—it’s probably a good idea to get some miles in since before your Fourth of July beer-and-hot-dog binge. RSVP here.

FREE, July 2nd at 6 p.m., Philadelphia Runner, 1601 Sansom Street, Center City.
