Philadelphia Running Clubs: Bryn Mawr Running Club

Bryn Mawr Running Club

The Bryn Mawr Running Club was formed in 1996 and is one of the oldest and largest running clubs in the Philadelphia area. The club includes runners of all abilities and fitness goals among its 400-plus members, ranging from the recreational jogger to the highly competitive road racer.

The Bryn Mawr Running Club is a social, supportive club with members of all different skill levels and goals. The club’s objectives range from reaching personal running goals, offering social running-related activities, and emphasizing the importance of running. The club hopes to use running as a means of  promoting and encouraging health and fitness for the social well being of members. In addition, the Bryn Mawr Running Club uses group runs as a positive and enjoyable way to enjoy exercise in the spirit of competition.

Groups meet on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and track workouts are on Tuesday nights. Group runs take place locally around each of the Bryn Mawr Running Company stores in Bryn Mawr, Manayunk and Media. You can also find members on the trails of Wissahickon, at Valley Green or on Kelly Drive. 

The Bryn Mawr Running Club hosts tailgate parties after the Broad Street Run and a cocktail party each spring. Members also receive a club T-shirt, 10 percent discount on items purchased at the Bryn Mawr Running Company Store, and an electronic newsletter published once a month.
