Philly Beer Week 2010: My Event at Dock Street
On Sunday afternoon, it starts as my event with all of you in the streets of Philadelphia. Then, it continues as I hand off event control to Dock Street where I'll hand out prizes, a few different bands will play live music, and the grill and taps will be operating at full power. Here's a re-pasting of the details I published last month. There's already a decent amount of people signed up; but, of course there's always room for more. Make sure you RSVP no later than 12 noon on Saturday. There are preparations that we need to do and I want to make sure that we don't leave from City Hall without you. Face it, we've all taken in quite a few extra calories over the last week. Let's burn a few off. ---Philly Beer Run Quick Notes--- the 'Date': June 13, 2010 the 'Time': meet between 12pm-12:30pm the 'Where': City Hall, northeast "apron" the 'What': Pick your own route through Center City (this is not a group run), finish at Dock Street at 50th/Baltimore the 'Twist': Make 4 stops along the way to complete a task/challenge (these will be very basic and require no special skills). You will learn more later about these stops. the 'Why': Even though the route you choose to these stops and eventually to Dock Street will take up to 6-7 miles, these stops provide both a break as well as the chance to earn more points the 'What are these points anyway?': Points will be accumulated by the runners and totaled at the finish as the basis for awarding prizes....beer prizes!! the 'Anything else?': There will be live music and a cookout awaiting the runners at Dock Street the 'Why are we doing this?': Because after 9 days of Philly Beer Week, this is a unique event that will help you to burn off some of those extra calories that you've put on during PBW and have fun at the same time! After you RSVP, you will be on a distribution list from which you will receive instructions closer to Sunday.
