Run in one or more of the FREE informal trail races (organized by the Wissahickon Wanderers) on All FIVE THURSDAY EVENINGS IN SEPTEMBER: Sept. 2, 9, 16, 23, and 30 starting at 6:30 from Valley Green Inn.

Please note that for the September 30th race, we will do things a little differently: Start time will be 6:45 in front of the Cedars House (close to NW Ave view Map »)

The distances range generally from three to five miles through the woods of the Wissahickon and along Forbidden Drive. The trail series races are FREE and open to absolutely everyone.

Thanks to Fred, Pat, Jim and the other volunteers for the timing, registration, and course layouts !
In addition to veteran Wanderers, we will have “guest star” directors from Chasing Trail and Trail Sisters

Please help us promote this event. The more runners that show up, the better for everyone. Please download this PDF and then use your personal email to forward it to running clubs and friends whom you think may be interested.

Dates: THURSDAY EVENINGS in September: Sep 2, Sep 9, Sep 16, Sep 23, Sep 30 (15th annual event!) Run in as many of these as you want.

Time: All races will begin at 6:30 sharp so that we can take advantage of the limited daylight. So show up a little early and bring this waiver with you to save time.
