We don’t promise the flattest, fastest, accurate-to-the-tenth of a mile courses.  Instead, we promise an even playing field for each team, unique opportunities to run through West Fairmount Park, and most importantly, an unparalleled team atmosphere.


 

Think the hills and the August weather sound challenging?
They will be. Take the challenge. Show us how tough your Club is.

“Many people shy away from hills. They make it easy on themselves, but that limits their improvement.  The more you repeat something, the stronger you get.”
