Rudolph Run! in Manayunk

December 8, 2018

On Dasher, on Dancer, on Prancer and Vixen
On Comet, on Cupid, on Donner and Blitzen!

‘Tis the season for holiday fun in the ‘yunk!

The 5th Annual Rudolph Run is on Saturday, December 8th. Join us for a fun 3 mile run along the Manayunk Canal starting at 9AM. Check in for the run will be at our shop on Main Street starting at 8:15AM. Our friends from New Balance are bringing shoes for you to test out on the run and some special post run treats back in our shop afterward.

Holiday attire is encouraged – lights, reindeer antlers, red noses, sparkles, ugly Christmas sweaters, and whatever else you may have laying around. The Manayunk Development Corporation will be handing out red noses and jingle bells to everyone feeling festive. To help spread some holiday cheer to those in need we’ll be collecting canned goods and other necessities again as donations/entry fee. Donation drop-off will be during runner check in at our shop on Main Street.

Round up some friends and celebrate the season with us on a jolly good run followed by hot chocolate and more sweet treats in our Manayunk shop. Sign up and let us know you’re coming by clicking the link in the event info.

Please note: This is just a fun run, not a race!
