Beer Run this Saturday
Come join Chris Leonard of General Lafayette and me on a 13.1 mile run from Lafayette Hill to Philadelphia's home of the new Tiedhouse. He and I could both use a lift as we come down the homestretch of preparation for the Philadelphia Marathon on 11/23. Run it or Bike it. It's one of the most beautiful routes through the Philly region into the heart of the city with...wait for it...beer and brunch awaiting us at the end...here's the tap list as of earlier this week. The official details follow below. It may be short notice, but you've gotta get outside for some exercise anyways, right?!
BEER RUN – THE TWO SWEETEST WORDS
WANNA RUN? THIRSTY, NEED BEER?
JUST SHOW UP, NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED
Saturday, November 8, 2008; meet @ 9:30am; leave @ 10:15am
> Start: General Lafayette Inn & Brewery; 646 Germantown Pike, Lafayette Hill, PA
> End: Tiedhouse; 2001 Hamilton Street, Philadelphia, PA
* One hydration station will be located roughly at the midpoint of the route
* Transportation will not be provided back to Lafayette Hill; but, contact Bryan@BrewLounge.com for possible carpooling options
This is not a sanctioned or sponsored race event; you will run at your own risk. However, to get your first round free at the new Tiedhouse gastropub in Philly, you'll need to show up at The General Lafayette and run or bike 13.1 miles along one of the most scenic routes in the Philly area.
This coming Saturday, come meet in Lafayette Hill, PA at The General Lafayette at 9:30am for a prompt 10:15am departure down along Forbidden Drive, Wissahickon Creek, and Kelly Drive into the Fairmount Section of Philly and the new Tiedhouse restaurant.
Your first beer will be on the house; there may even be prizes. But, you must have first run or biked from The General Lafayette. Whether you're in the tapering stage leading up to the Philly Marathon on 11/23 or simply looking for some exercise with fellow beer lovers, this couldn't be a more appropriate run to do this coming weekend. Plus, the weather forecast looks great for a beautiful autumn run.
