Saturday Group Runs with WCRC


Considering joining WCRC for a Saturday morning group run! We meet outside the door of the YMCA on Chestnut Street every Saturday at 7:30AM. We say hello and then run in the Borough at our own paces.

Note:  In the interest of social distancing our Saturday morning group runs are more of a “meet up and run your own way” event rather than a traditional big group run.
