Calling all overachievers: We’ve got the perfect running club for you. CorePower Yoga’s Walnut Street location just launched a new run club that meets at 6 p.m. on Mondays for a roughly 45-minute-long run — but it doesn’t end there. After the run, the group heads to CorePower’s 7 p.m. Yoga Sculpt class, a killer hourlong heated yoga class that works in weights. See? Told you this was perfect for the overachievers out there.

As studio manager Nanci Dodson tells us, the run club, led by a member of the studio, just kicked off last week. The runs are completely free to join in on, and all paces are welcome; the post-run yoga class will cost you the normal drop-in rate ($23). As Dodson says, “We’re hoping to build more community and get our students to know each other, and invite others in as well.”

The group leaves from CorePower (1616 Walnut Street) on Mondays at 6 p.m., and you can look for updates on the CorePower Yoga Philly Facebook page. Happy sweating — a lot.
