Welcome to Philly Runners!

Formed in March 2002, we are an all-skills running club based in Center City Philadelphia, open to all runners. We have men and women of all ages. Our skill level ranges from new runners who can only run a couple miles at a time through Olympic hopefuls.

• Everybody is always welcome at all of our runs, regardless of pace or distance.

• There is no fee to join our club. Just come and run. We do have a weekly email list, but you don't have to be on it to run with us.

• The runs are never canceled, not even when there's four feet of snow on the ground. Very exceptionally, the location of the meetup spot may be moved if there's an event at the Art Museum Steps. If so, this will be noted in the yellow banner above on this home page.

• You don't need to let us know you're coming. Just come and run. We'll be there and we are always happy to welcome new runners.
