We’ve got some exciting news so go ahead and bust out your calendars, runners: We’re teaming up with our friends at The Philly 10K again this year to put on four training runs throughout the summer, conveniently designed to fit oh-so-nicely into your Official Training Plan for the Philly 10K, which we’ll be posting next week. And in true Be Well Philly and The Philly 10K fashion, there’s free beer involved.

The runs, which will all leave from the Philadelphia Runner Center City store at 16th and Sansom Street at 6 p.m., are open to anyone and everyone, whether you’re running The Philly 10K or not. The schedule looks like this: The first run will be held on Monday, June 20th and will take us to University City’s Shake Shack where there will be a free beer or glass of wine awaiting all runners (yes, please!); the second run, on Monday, July 18th, will go to Federal Donuts’ 7th Street location (we see sweets in your future); the third run, going down Monday, August 15th, will take us to Fishtown’s Philadelphia Brewing Company; and the last run will be a shake-out run the Friday before the race, on August 26th, taking us to (where else?) The Philly 10K’s New Balance Bibs & Beers Pick-Up Party.

All of the runs will be between 2 and 3.5 miles and, along with getting a run in with great company, pop-up runners will get to test New Balance kicks during the runs and will snag a pair of snazzy The Philly 10K sunglasses by New Balance. So yeah, go ahead and mark these down on your calendar. We’ll be dishing on the details of the pop-up runs and what exactly runners can expect at each finish line as they get closer, but for now, you can RSVP to the first run, going down June 20th, here. See you there, runners!
