PRTC Weekly: 08/14/2017 Mayor’s Cup Repeat and More

Mayor’s Cup Results

PRTC reigned supreme this past weekend at the 3rd annual Mayor’s Cup. The team took 1st place out of an amazingly diverse field of 35 city based clubs. We had 14 participants take on 5 scored races from the 5k up to the trail half-marathon (no easy feat at Belmont!). The results are peppered with PRTC runners and friends to include great performances from Breakaway, Bucknell Alumni, and Team Philly. Mayor’s Cup is quickly becoming a special city tradition and a unique showcase for Philly’s booming running scene.
Shout out to the PRTC’s women’s team who went UNDEFEATED in all 5 distances. The women’s outstanding results coupled with two first place male finishers earns us the happy honor of seeing the Mayor’s Cup trophy once again displayed at Philadelphia Runner’s Center City store for the year.
Special thanks to Phila Massages who provided PRTC and Team Philly  one of the best things possible at a race: free massages! For anyone who enjoyed this treat (and who wouldn’t?!?), remember, PRTC membership comes with 20% off regular massage prices or 20% off membership at their Manayunk location.
