The Boxers’ Trial 5K Run is back!
Not a professional runner? Not a problem.
The Boxers’ Trial 5K run/walk is not a race of who is the fastest but a chance to walk or run the scenic paths in East Fairmount Park. Same paths where heavyweight boxing champion, Joe Frazier, ran and trained. Come out for a great workout, an opportunity to meet awesome people and support a great cause all at once! All proceeds benefit the East Fairmount Park and Mander Recreation Center which organizes youth programs.
Not convinced yet this is the trail for you? Check below for even more reasons why to explore this trail:
1. What better way to welcome fall? Start the new season feeling motivated.
2. The scenery is therapeutic. According to an article in Medical News Today, by Tim Newman “Exercising in natural environments, as opposed to indoors, improves mental well-being.”
3. Opportunity to explore Philadelphia and its history – run or walk back into the 1800s as we pass the Laurel Hill and Rockland mansions, two Philadelphia historic houses.
This will be our third year at the Boxers’ Trial 5K Run/Walk. We loved it before and we know we will love it again!
