marathon water table

The Wissahickon Wanderers will be once more working in the trenches at the upcoming Philadelphia Marathon on November 24. The Wanderers will be running the water station at the 18/22 mile mark of the race, which has been our customary spot for many years. To properly staff the site, about 60 volunteers will be needed. NOTE: like last year, volunteers must sign up in advance.






Please review the Marathon Waterstop FAQ Fact Sheet for more information. The hours are flexible.  Come for a two-hour segment or for the duration.

We start setting up at 6:30 and don’t really finish up until about 1 pm.  The real crunch time is between 9:30 and 11:30.  To make it manageable for volunteers, we ask you to sign up for any two hour segment, and make sure to include your shirt size because all volunteers get a free shirt.

NOTE: the water table is in front of Cadence bicycle store, in Manayunk, across from Deke’s. View the map »
