It’s not too late to join our half marathon team that will participate in the Philadelphia Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon on September 15th. Anyone interested in participating is welcome to join us for our first training run this Sunday, June 30th at 8am. Sunday’s run will be held at Central Perkiomen Valley Park located at 1 Plank Road, Schwenksville, PA 19473. We will be starting with four miles.
The Philadelphia Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon walk/run covers 13.1 miles of Philadelphia; a course packed with fans as well as local bands, it always draws a crowd.
This is a great opportunity for anyone who has ever thought about running a half marathon. The program provides free training and will encourage participants to become motivated by weekly team runs, all while giving back to members of the community by assisting with our Strong Kids … Strong Community Campaign.
Team members will receive a training plan, participate in weekly team walk/runs, receive emails with running tips and advice and receive coaching along the way. Participants do not have to be a member of the YMCA to attend these sessions or to be on the team. Training begins this week, so join our team now!
Our Strong Kids … Strong Community Campaign raises money that is used to provide financial assistance for Y programs and services for members of the community who could not otherwise afford them.
Those interested in joining the “Strong Kids Run” team should contact Jen Howard or Michelle McKeown at our Lansdale Branch at 215-368-1601.
