Real feel: more miles than degrees 🥶

If you’re heading out for a run in the cold, be prepared! We put together a few tips to help:

1. Dress like it’s 15 to 20 degrees warmer than the temperature outside. Make sure to check the real feel and take any weather conditions like wind, rain, snow into account. You’ll be cold for the first mile but want to avoid overheating once you are moving. If you’re warm before you head out or start to run, you’re probably overdressed.

2. Layer! Layer! Layer! Choose warm, breathable, sweat wicking pieces to help regulate heat. Start with a base layer to wick away moisture then add a layer to insulate and preserve heat. If it’s windy or snowing, add a protective layer like a windbreaker or insulated jacket.

3. Cover up! Minimize skin exposure to prevent heat loss. Stick with breathable, sweat wicking materials for a hat, gloves, neck gaiter, and socks.

For more tips and to check out our selection of winter running gear, stop by our shops, send us a message or visit our online store! Our staff is here to help keep you moving comfortably throughout the year.

Moody morning miles.

It’s a little slippery out there! Good thing we had on a pair of waterproof shoes to keep our feet warm and dry 👟

We’ve reached the finish line of another year. As we reflect back on 2021, we are thankful for all of the miles shared and memories made with our staff, friends, family, and community - all of you! Whether you joined us for a run, celebrated the opening of our new store in Center City or reopening in Manayunk, shopped with us in store and online, or simply stopped by to say hi - thank you for keeping us running into 2022. The photos in this post capture just a tiny fraction of the last 365 days, there is no way to capture everything in one post 😉

Our stores are open until 3pm today and we will only be open in Center City tomorrow between 10am - 2pm to kick off the new year with our annual Resolution Run at 10am (join us!).

From all of us at Philadelphia Runner, we wish you a happy & healthy new year!

Runners, you may have heard about an attack on MLK Drive over the weekend. Longtime local runner, Bennett Brookstein, was assaulted during his morning run. Bennett is among other things, a husband, father, the president of the Fairmount Running Club, friend of the store and many in the running community (really - he knows everyone!), and member of the PR Pace Team. Thankfully he is ok and we wish him a speedy recovery as he heals.

As a show of support the running and biking community will be gathering together at 6:30pm tonight to join the weekly Fairmount Running Club group meeting at Eastern State Penitentiary. The run is about 5 miles out and back (you can run less). All paces welcome. Or just show up at the start to support our friend Bennett. See you tonight!

You serious Clark?

The perfect gift does exist! Our stores are closed for the day but you can still send (or schedule) an e-card to anyone left on your list. Whether they want the perfect push-up, a new pair of running shoes, or apparel to keep them running through the winter, a PR e-card is the gift that keeps giving, Clark W. Griswold approved 👍

First we passed through the seven levels of the candy cane forest, through the sea of swirly-twirly tree tops, and then we walked by the Lincoln Drive.
