Bryn Mawr Running Company presents the 11th Annual Midsummer 5k Race Series (we are not counting 2020 :( ). This year's event will be LIVE but will look slightly different until we can clear the Covid 19 Pandemic. There will also be a virtual option for those not quite comfortable attending a live event. Based on the updated Pennsylvania state standards, we will be limited to 225 participants for each event. Mask and social distancing will be required before and after the 5K. There will be no mass start but staggered start of 2 participants every 10 seconds. We are still in discussion of other safety protocols that may be needed. Stay tuned, the situation is fluid and will probably evolve (hopefully for the better).
The 5k race will take place in the quiet and safe neighborhood surrounding South Ardmore Park, Wynnewood Pa on the second Thursday evening of each Summer month. The course will consist of 3 circuits on a slightly rolling course called the “Ardmore Loop.” Awards will be provided for in each race for overall runners and age groups winners by the Bryn Mawr Running/Racing Company and Brooks. There will also be scoring for those who complete all three races. Runners will accumulate points in overall male/female categories along with their age group categories. Awards for the 3 combined races will be provided by one of our sponsors.
The event will be again be chip timed using the MYLAPS Run BibTag System by the Bryn Mawr Racing Co. Brooks Podium Technical Midsummer Series T-shirts will be distributed at the JULY race or during race packet pickup the night before.
After each race there will be an after party at Hykels Bar and Grill (TBD based on 2021 health data). Bring in your race bib for one complimentary beverage on us!
Please bring the whole family! A very popular kids race in South Ardmore Park will precede the 5K!
Race proceeds will benefit Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and Lower Merion Parks and Recreation and the Bryn Mawr Running Club will also be 2019 beneficiaries. Since 2010, we have raised over $60,000 for these charities!!
Please be aware that summer evening races are at the mercy of pop up thunderstorms. We will run rain or shine, if lightning, we'll hold off until it clears. If it's an ongoing storm, we'll postpone. There are NO REFUNDS.
Avoid the lines and come to the Bryn Mawr Running Co. usually the Wednesday before each race. The Summer Series will email out specifics before each race.
