For many years, Fast Tracks has provided the volunteer support at the Mile-9.8 water stop on the Philadelphia Marathon race course. We need volunteers to participate! It's a fun and rewarding morning and it’s important to the runners who need us.
Runners of all ages, paces, and levels of experience are welcome to join us for a run. Fast Tracks coordinates a variety of runs throughout the week. These are our most popular weekly runs:
Saturday Morning Long Run
The Saturday morning long distance training (LDT) run typically starts at 7am. Most weeks, the group meets at the Betzwood Pincic Area for a run on the schuylkill river trail but locations do sometimes vary from week to week. Some runners do up to 20 miles while others just do a few. Either way, the Saturday morning long run provides a social way to train for an upcoming race or just enjoy a scenic group run.
Wednesday Evening Track WorkoutThis weekly track workout is on Wednesday evenings at the Conestoga High School Track. We begin with a dynamic warm up at 6:00pm followed by 10-15 minutes of easy running. The workout begins at 6:15pm.
