There will be wooder stops on the course if you’re into that sort of thing. Keep your eyes peeled for surprises too.
Packet Pick Up will be at the Farg on Friday, October 11th from 10am-2pm, and Saturday, October 12th from 10am-2pm.
Packet Pick Up will not be available the morning of the race. It’s too early for these paws to be passing out bibs to you procrastinators. I’m teaching you a life lesson. One of the many Grittyisms you will learn along the way.
This isn’t your chance to prove a point and take the road less travelled, you are not Robert Frost. Here’s the gameplan. We begin at the Dojo, then will gingerly proceed to some pretty places along Broad Street, namely the best spot to just take in the glorious view of I-95. For the maritime enthusiasts, we're passing by some big ships in the Navy Yard. Then, we'll be comin' in hot to that finish line at Xfinity Live! This isn’t about winning, it’s about honoring me. Just remember that while you’re wheezing across the finish line.
Block Party. Gritty Worshipers convention. Whatever you want to call it. But also, lots of orange stuff, games, sponsors and vendors and friends, Gritty snacks, tunes spun by DeeJay Shelly, and lots of ways to get your hockey on.
A little ditty about Flyers Charities...
I made it to my first Flyers Wives Carnival last year and had me a good ol’ time. I heard that Carnival's been around for over 40 years, and they gave more than $29 million to charity! I like them and what they do for the community, so we answered the call and whipped together a little shindig we’ve dubbed the Gritty 5K.
From my friends: The funds raised by Flyers Charities (and the Gritty 5K) help support non-profit organizations that provide educational and recreational resources to underserved youth, engage in important medical and healthcare research, and promote countless community development initiatives throughout the Greater Philadelphia region. Past grantees include the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation, Michael's Way, Center for Autism, USO, Simon's Heart, the Police Athletic League, Special Olympics Philadelphia, Philabundance, Salvation Army, the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House and many more.
