Best of Philly

2013 Running Club

Fishtown Beer Runners

Intimidated by the pace-obsessed, -spandex-clad enthusiasts who populate some running clubs? This once-a-week group (Thursdays at 7 p.m.) is for you. The runs are short (usually three to five miles), the atmosphere is welcoming (all levels attend), and the post-workout refreshments (enjoyed at a different bar each week) are more than motivating.

Starting point: 2346 East Susquehanna Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19125;
