If you love running with your dog but have a hard time finding races in our area that allow four-legged competitors (Trust me, it’s hard—dog-friendly races are few and far between), this is the guide for you. Here are five runs and races in and around Philly—including one that features wine-tasting, too!—that welcome human-and-dog running teams. Plus, I threw in two dog-friendly walks, if that’s more your bag.
Peruse all the info about the runs while you also look at these adorably gratuitous photos of dogs running. You’re welcome.
Last week, I set out to write what I thought would be the Ultimate Philly Runner’s Guide to Post-Run Brunching. Because think about it: What could be more useful to Philly runners than a list of solid brunch places near some of the area’s most popular running spots?

So I turned to my friends over at Foobooz to get their obviously more informed opinions on the subject. They thought about it for a week, and got their picks to me this morning. Guys, they did not disappoint.
Your Thirsty Thursdays are about to take on a whole new meaning. The Wall Cycling Studio in Manayunk is debuting a new class tomorrow that features both indoor and outdoor workouts and a post-workout happy hour to boot.
I knew I was on to something all those times I’ve chugged a mug of coffee before a run. Not only does the caffeine improve my performance, coffee gives me about the same level of hydration as drinking a glass of water, according to a review of recent studies reported in a “Medical Myths” column on the BBC.
I know, I know—why are we talking about Octoberfest in April?, you ask. Here’s why: Because the Yuengling Light Lager Jogger, the brewery’s springtime 5K that’s coming up this weekend, is always a quick sell-out, so I wanted to give you plenty of lead time on Yuengling’s just-announced second race on tap for later this year.
