Happy Spring (that finally feels like Winter)!

Coolest Weekend Event – March 25 – 27th:

This weekend’s a little slower with the Easter Holiday, but here’s a bonus event:

Rootstock Racing and the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education present the inaugural Run Your Own Adventure Trail Race! Runners will begin as they would any other trail race, but at some point, they will encounter a literal fork in the road, marked by enlarged maps which they will have to quickly study. From there, they will choose their path and continue along, only to encounter further options later in the course. All routes will ultimately come back together at the finish. Saturday at 9 AM; The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education, 8480 Hagys Mill Rd, Philadelphia, $35; Register online here.
