RnR Philly Half

Who from GRC is racing the Philly Half Marathon in September (NOT November)? I want to start a discussion about transportation and lodging. Please post your plans below in "comments".

I for one will be bombing up there on Saturday morning, spending the night, and then racing the next day. I'd love to carpool/split costs on the travel. If we have enough people racing (and needing rooms) I can ask the GRC COUNCIL about using funds to help offset these costs.

Hopefully I have better luck than Dickson did in getting a response...

I'll be heading up Saturday as well but staying with a friend in Philly.

For what it's worth, my recommendation is hotwiring a hotel in City Center East. We usually land the Sheraton on 17th and Race, which is <1mi from the start. Really convenient. And we always go to eat at Continental Midtown the night before.

I'm doing it! My Socialist wife might go too however.

CTR - does that mean we would have to split all costs down the middle?

I think it means we get to share his wife.

ah hahahaha... I will be staying with a friend as well, ~1.5 miles from the start. Was hoping to leave in the PM, but if we can all caravan together in the AM, I would do that

I plan to go up Saturday morning/early afternoon and I'm interested in sharing a room near the race.

I live 30 minutes from the start. I will be driving from my parents. If anybody wants in (could comfortably sleep 3 others).
