Pasadena Pacers: Annual Philippe’s Run

April 27 @ 7:00 am - 12:00 pm

**Long run will be on Strava soon. A map for the short route will be available day of.**

The annual Philippe’s Run is the one Saturday of the year when our training run is transformed into a destination run for ALL Pasadena Pacers. This event is a blast as we run a straight out distance for 9.7 miles to Philippe The Original Restaurant in Downtown Los Angeles. This route is a combination of trails, Arroyo Seco Bike Path, and inner city sidewalks. This year’s event will be extra special since our Spring Programs will graduate upon finishing the run. Join us for the adventure, change of running scenery, good food, and new friends from fellow running groups!

The route is a bit tricky so everyone should wear their Pacer red t-shirt. There are plenty of Pacers who have done this run in the past and know the route, so stay with them. There will be sweepers but we advise that you run with at least one other Pacer. We will have hard copies of the directions available at the start of the run. The group picture will be taken a bit before 7:00 am so PLEASE get there early.

**We are NOT meeting at the Bowl on 4/27. This is the only Pacer run for the day.**

IF YOU ARE A PRE-CONDITIONER (OR ONLY WANT TO RUN 5.6 MILES):
Go to the Del Mar Gold Line Station. Park in the subterranean parking and walk up… to the street level (the group will meet by the entrance to the subterranean parking on Raymond Avenue). Please be ready to run at 7:00 a.m. sharp! You will be provided with the full details on your combined run/metro adventure to Philippe’s. Bring enough cash to ride the metro to/from ($1 for metro card pass + $1.75 per boarding) and for breakfast. After breakfast, you will take the Gold Line back from the Chinatown Station to the Del Mar Station. Save your Gold Line ticket – it serves as a parking validation to exit the station parking lot (though there still may be a small parking fee).

IF YOU ARE RUNNING THE ENTIRE 9.7 MILES TO PHILIPPE’S:
Go to the Del Mar Gold Line Station. Park in the subterranean parking and walk up to the street level (the group will meet by the entrance to the subterranean parking on Raymond Avenue). Please be ready to run at 7:00 a.m. sharp! We want to arrive before they stop serving breakfast and about the same time that the Pre-Conditioners arrive. Bring cash for food and for the metro ride back ($1 for metro card pass + $1.75 per boarding). Don’t forget to bring water (there will only be one water station at Mile 6). After breakfast, you will take the Gold Line back from the Chinatown Station to the Del Mar Station. Save your Gold Line ticket – it serves as a parking validation to exit the station parking lot (though there still may be a small parking fee).

***We will be offering a drop bag option if you would like to change upon arrival at Philippe’s. We just ask that you clearly mark the bag with your name and phone number.****
