It may not feel completely like spring yet, but warmer weather is slowing working its way back into our lives. And with the arrival of spring, there comes a plethora of outdoor running events and marathons around the city. If you like to run and you live at Dockside, you’re in luck! Of course, you can always take a run, bike or have a nice walk along the river on the Delaware River Trail, just outside our doors here at Dockside. But for a more organized and official experience, check out one of these:

If you’re a runner, take advantage of some of these fun outdoor runs, now that we can start to come out of winter hibernation. If you don’t run, it’s still fun to get out, watch the action, and cheer on the runners!
