Are you a runner/hiker who cares about the health of our urban parks and waterways?

Sign up now for the Healthy Trails 5K, a Philadelphia Water-sponsored event that’s helping to raise funds for the TTF Watershed Partnership, one of our key community partners.

Now in its 4th year, the Healthy Trails 5K explores a paved course wandering through the woods along the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Creek in Northeast Philadelphia. Participants will start at Friends Hospital, cross the historic Fishers Lane Bridge, and connect with the Tacony Creek Park trail.

The race will take place Sunday, April 17 from 8-10 a.m.
As a bonus, the first 50 Healthy Trails 5K supporters who give $50 will get coveted bibs for this year’s Broad Street Run. (At the time this blog was published, about 20 BSR bibs were still unclaimed.)

Pricing is also available for teams, and runners under 12/walkers can take part for free. Click here to learn more and register. Online signups close Friday at noon, but walk-ups are welcome on race day.

From TTF:

Proceeds from the race will support programs and stewardship in Tacony Creek Park through the efforts of the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed Partnership (TTF). TTF’s mission is to improve the health and vitality of the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Creek and watershed by engaging our communities in education, stewardship, restoration and advocacy. Visit http://ttfwatershed.org/ to learn more and get involved.

We hope to see you on the trail!
