To Do: 26 x 1 Mile Relay with West Philly Runners

Getting by with a little help from your friends. (We couldn't resist.)

Start gathering your 26 closest friends to create a team for West Philly Runner’s 26 x 1 (plus .2!) Mile Relay Challenge, set for July 28th in Fairmount Park. This is the perfect marathon for runners who think 26.2 is just too far to run solo, since you and your buddies share the distance. Each team will have a designated champion to duke it out with fellow competitors for the 0.2 mile leg. Sign up as a group or solo to be put on a team. Registration is free. More info here.

FREE, Saturday, July 28 at 10:00 a.m., Fairmount Park Horticultural Center, 100 North Horticultural Drive
