Oreos and peanut butter, Nutella and bananas, beer and running; what do these all have in common? Well, they’re pairings that at first don’t seem to go together, but once you try them, there is NO going back.
Sure, you can easily get your hands on the first two, but what about finding a place (and pals) to run with and figuring out how to find the best spots in the neighborhood for a celebratory beer? Luckily, we’ve got you covered. A little over a week ago, we told you guys about the Manayunk Beer Runners, a new chapter in the network of official Beer Runners chapters. And now there is yet another beer running group to add to the list: The Elkins Park Beer Runners! Their objective mirrors that of the other official Beer Runners groups, started by the Fishtown Beer Runners: Meet weekly at a designated location, go for a three-to five-mile run, and then grab a beer.
The group, which welcomes all runners over 21, had their inaugural run yesterday. Their usual meeting place is the McKinley Tavern at 881 Township Line Road (check back here for updates). There are no fees — just make sure to bring some moolah for your beer; you’ll have earned it!
