Run in one or more of the informal trail races (organized by the Wissahickon Wanderers).


SUNDAY MORNINGS IN JANUARYstarting at 9:00 AM from Valley Green Inn. 


We meet at the Valley Green Inn on Forbidden Drive in the Wissahickon (directions). The Inn, by the way, welcomes runners no matter how sweaty for post-race refreshment! 


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

The Course Layouts will be designed by the Wanderers Joe Coyle, Dan Flickinger, and Sean Reisman.


There is no need to register but to save time, please complete and bring a signed copy of the waiver (pdf).


This is a FREE event, but a suggested $5 donation per race, or a $15 donation for the entire 4 race series would be much appreciated.

Donations cover our expenses and any excess funds will be donated to the Friends of the Wissahickon”.
