Presenting Mayor Michael Nutter with an FBR shirt.

On Thursday, December 19, the Fishtown Beer Runners will turn six! What began as two friends going out on a run has grown into a weekly running club of new friends from across the city running together.  As I reflect back on 2013, I’m amazed how much FBR has grown in both numbers and in activities.  I am most proud of the many people who have transformed their lives through the power of running and credit FBR for being a source of support and encouragement.  FBR has inspired many non-runners to make their first run, smokers to put down their cigarettes, casual runners to become marathoners, and marathoners to become ultra-marathoner.  Thanks to you, FBR supported many local businesses through our weekly Thursday night runs, and raised money and volunteered for worthy causes including Achilles International, Philabundance, Back On My Feet, and many others.

Thank you to all of you for making FBR a dynamic running club that encompasses more than running.  Cheers to  another great year and 2014 promises to be even more exciting!

“To The Professor!”
