Love running? Love beer? If you answered yes to both questions, joining the Manayunk Beer Runners might be for you! What is it, you ask? The Manayunk Beer Runners is a social running club, which gets together weekly to take on predetermined 3-5 mile runs that end at a local spot with quality beer. According to their Facebook page, their mission is:

To test and promote the results of the scientific research study conducted by Manuel J Castillo-Garzon, MD, Professor of Medical Physiology, School of Medicine, University of Granada, Spain. The study said that beer and water have similar rehydration effects which compared a moderate amount of beer (660 ML) to the same amount of water.

Tonight's run begins at 6:30pm on Main Street & Green Lane, and it'll be a leisurely run on the Towpath ending at Union Tap House (which won Best Tap List in the 2017 Best of Manayunk). You can check out the Manayunk Beer Runners Facebook page for more information and to see upcoming runs.
