Training for a fall race? Weekly speed intervals will help you meet your goal!
Join WCRC at the Westtown School’s track on Tuesday nights at 6PM for a speed workout. New to speedwork? No problem! Club members will be happy to explain the ins and outs of running intervals on the track.

Details of the workout will be announced in advance by email and on Facebook.


Weekly group runs leave from the front door of the YMCA on Chestnut Street every Saturday at 9AM. All paces are welcome!! The route typically goes to West Goshen Park (5-6 miles) with options to add on or reduce mileage as needed.

Please check Facebook or the WCRC email list if you have any questions about a Saturday morning run.
