There’s a Free Group Run to the Shiny New Whole Foods This Weekend

Run, play and snack — for free! Sounds like a good Saturday morning to us.

Who loves running and Whole Foods? My hand is raised as high as my shoulder will let it go right now. If yours is too, take note: This Saturday, November 5th, the Fairmount Park Conservancy is hosting a five-ish-mile run that starts at the shiny new Whole Foods Market at 2101 Pennsylvania Avenue, taking runners through East Fairmount Park and ending back at Whole Foods for complimentary snacks and specials on drinks like local draft beers and kombucha and lattes for the non-boozy brunchers among us.

Amazing, we know.

The all-levels run, being led by John Goldthorp of Fix Your Run, will kick off at 9 a.m. and all you have to do to join in is sign up here. The shindig is serving as a pep rally of sorts for the Conservancy’s Broad Street team (you’ll learn more at the run). AND get this: Not only do you get snacks at the finish line — during the run, you’ll make a pit-stop at Smith Memorial Playground and slide down their giant wooden slide, usually reserved for kids only, before the playground opens.

It will be a magical morning.
