We will be setting up tables at the Mile-9.8 water stop on the Philadelphia Marathon race course. , filling up cups with water/Gatorade, handing off these cups and energy gels to runners, and cleaning up our trash/recyclables. Oh, and cheering on every runner on the course! Its a fun morning and all volunteers get a FREE SWEATSHIRT.
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.
Tuesday Evening Track WorkoutDue to scheduling conflicts at Conestoga High School Track. Our track session has been moved from Wednesday to Tuesday evening at 6:15pm for the 2022-2023 school year. This informal workout provides is a great opportunity for runners of all paces and abilities to become stronger runners by participating in structured short distance weekly workouts.
