The Broad Street Run has come and gone. While some runners are still basking in the glow of their accomplishment, others are still in recovery. No matter which grouping you’re in, you’re more than welcome to join the second annual Citywide Recovery Run hosted by Philly Run Fest and the Fishtown Beer Runners.

On Thursday, May 10, from 7 to 11 p.m., runners from all over the city will come together for a post-Broad Street celebration filled with beer, fun, and camaraderie at Goose Island’s Brewhouse in Fishtown.

Before the fun begins, however, local runners plan to clock some miles (it’s basically a habit at this point, right?) by running to the brewhouse. Once you arrive, you can grab a well-deserved (and discounted!) beer. You can also purchase some raffle tickets while you’re at it for the chance to score some awesome swag. Oh, and here’s the best part: Goose Island named Students Run Philly Style their charity of the month. So drink up; it’s for a good cause.

This run will bring together many of Philly’s running groups from around the city. So far, over ten running groups (find their starting points listed here) are planning to skip their normal routes in favor of joining in on the Fishtown fun.

Not a part of a local running group or don’t see your tribe on the list? Fret not. Anyone is welcome to join the Fishtown Beer Runners, who will be departing from the City Hall courtyard at 7 p.m. Or, if you’d rather make your way there alone, that’s cool too. The Fishtown Beer Runners will give a toast around 8:30 p.m. so you’ll definitely want to be on site, drink in hand, by then.

There you have it, friends! Now go enjoy the party — you’ve earned it!

Goose Island Brewhouse is located at 1002 Canal Street in Fishtown. RSVP to the celebration here.
