Running Club


The YIP Running Club is a monthly running club that meets on the first Tuesday of each month at Philadelphia Runner at 6:30PM.


YIP’s Running Club won Philly Mag’s 2014 Best Running Club Award!

Each month we run 2-5 miles to an interesting place in the city (historic, public space, point of interest, etc.) where we will do a brief 5-10 minute tour or Q & A before heading to bar in the neighborhood for post-run camaraderie.

The goal of the YIP running club is to provide a new avenue for conversation and networking while exploring interesting locations throughout Philadelphia (and hey, you get a workout in too).

The YIP running club is a collaboration between Young Involved Philadelphia and Philadelphia Runner with participation from partners across the city.

Runners of all levels are welcome, with most runs splitting into groups for longer and shorter distance runners.
