The Philly Lululemon Ghost Race is here

The Ghost Race is Lululemon’s annual virtual 8K race. The race takes place in over 12 cities across the country but Philly is actually where the Ghost Race originated from. Competitors use the Strava app to track their time and pace, the best part is you can see what every other runner is doing in every other city. Basically, it's the ultimate form of motivation. 

 

Philly runners have the choice between two different trails: the SRT East, which follows a flat section of the Schuylkill River Trail along Kelly Drive, and the SRT West, that has a scenic turn-around point by a waterfall. Your chances are endless within the challenge, you can run as many times as you want and at any point in the day or night, there are no restrictions.
