Tip Of The Day

Avoid Skipping Recovery

Listening to your body is key to avoiding injury and burnout. Your body can actually grow stronger when you are at rest. The process of training includes workouts that are strategically placed along with rest days, which provides stimulation during the activity and recovery when you are at rest. If you are new to running, it is important not to push yourself to hard. Injuries can pop up when training advances too quickly. If your body is giving you warning signs, listen and take the extra time off so you can fully adjust and recover to meet your specific fitness needs.

45th Annual Firefighters' Memorial 5k Run

This event was first organized in 1975 to honor the memory of eight Philadelphia Firefighters who lost their lives battling the Gulf Oil Refinery fire on August 17, 1975. The Memorial Run has continued annually in order to remember all other Philadelphia Firefighters who have died in the line of duty. This year marks the 44th Anniversary of the Gulf Oil Fire (Aug 17, 1975). We are also remembering the following: 40th Anniversary of FF Edward Smedley (April 9, 1977); 35th Anniversary of FF Kenneth M. Gallagher (Aug 14, 1982) and FF Stanley Brown (Aug 16, 1982); 20th Anniversary of LT Terry McElveen and FF James Hynes (Oct 27, 1997); 5th Anniversary of LT Robert Neary and FF Dan Sweeney (Apr 9, 2012). Join us for a timed 5K run or 1 mile fun run/walk. Proceeds benefit the local burn centers in the Philadelphia Area. Cost: 5k - $20 before 9/6/19, then $35 afterwards; $5 for 1 mile fun run/walk.
