The Philly 10K Organizers Bringing Giant Yoga-and-Running Festival to the Navy Yard This Spring

the philly 5 mile leadGuys, guys, guys: I think this might be one of the most exciting fitness events we’ve written about, like, ever. Remember a few months ago, the organizers of the Philly 10K told us all to mark Memorial Day of this year as “busy” in our calendars? Well, now we know why. On Monday, May 30th, the organizers behind the Philly 10K are bringing us an awesome new annual event: their first-ever yoga-and-running festival — complete with a live concert, a BBQ catered by Lo Spiedo (with veg-friendly options!), and a beer garden courtesy of Yards Brewing Company. The event will go down at the Navy Yard, and the name of it? The Philly 5 Mile.

Excuse me while I go jump up and down with joy. Read more »

So, to help you make it through the race (and, more importantly, to your free beer and custard) nice and strong, we got one of our favorite Philly runners, Rebecca Barber of the Rocky 50K, to put together an awesome playlist for you. Barber has made many a long running playlist — she does run 50Ks for fun, after all — so you are in good hands. Good luck, folks! (And pssst: If you’re running this weekend, make sure to come by our tent at the finish line festival for some yoga for runners and massages after the race!) Read more »
