Penn Wynne 5K

Location:
Penn Wynne Elementary School
250 Haverford Road
Wynnewood, PA US 19096

Benefiting the Penn Wynne Library and the Penn Wynne Elementary Home and School Association.

Course: strollers welcome! This year we will be continuing last-year’s spectator-friendly course through rolling Penn Wynne beginning and ending at the Penn Wynne Elementary School. The course includes a good downhill section near the start of the race, followed by a long flat stretch, then a steady climb and some rollers during the gradual descent, ending with a zig-zag back up to PWES. The race retraces a few sections to allow runners and fans to see each other as the action unfolds.

The 1 Mile Fun Run goes through the Penn Wynne neighborhood and loops back to the school, giving participants of all ages and speeds the thrill of crossing the finish line. Read More

The Right Foot Forward Your Experience

At The Running Place, our goal is to ensure that you not only receive the right shoes, but also understand the reasons behind the choice. We provide free consultations, where we perform a gait analysis, inspect your worn out shoes for telling wear patterns, and talk with you about any injury history. All of this information helps us determine what shoe type is best for you.

 

Every journey begins with the first step. Before you take that first step, make sure you have the right shoes to get you where you are going. There are high arches, flat arches, and all heights in between. Some feet are rigid and some are flexible. There are different categories of shoes - different foot types are more comfortable and perform better in the right category. We will help you determine your foot type and which category best suits your needs.
