Phils Tavern
Quarter Marathon

The Ambler Area Running Club proudly presents the Phils Tavern Quarter Marathon on Sat., July 15th at 7:30 AM - a unique race created by runners for the running community . The race course is mostly local roads, with two short sections of flat trails/cross-country grass to keep things fun! We feature flexible registration options. You pay only $15 for the race registration and donate as much as you prefer to our race beneficiaries, Dan's Voice and Pennypack Farm and Education Center.
 
Online registration is now closed.  You can still register on race day from 6-7AM or at the Phils Tavern on Thurs evening from 6-8PM.

Beneficiaries

100% of your donations will go to these worthy charities.  Please give generously.

Dan’s Voice Memorial Fund for The Treatment and Research of Head & Neck Cancer was founded in loving memory of Dan Rich, who lost his voice and ultimately his life to laryngeal/esophageal cancer in 2013. Dan Rich was a husband, father of two, entrepreneur, coach, amateur musician and friend to many. The vision of Dan’s Voice is to fund ground-breaking research, purchase advanced diagnostic tools, and enhance patient care and comfort, all with the goal of reducing the burden on patients afflicted with head and neck cancer.
Dan's Voice is currently in the process of raising $50,000 to purchase a video endoscope for Fox Chase Cancer Center. The new equipment will help surgeons provide more accurate diagnoses and allow more procedures to be performed in the clinic instead of the operating room. Click here to learn more.

At Pennypack Farm & Education Center, our goals are to Grow, Give, and Teach about sustainable, local food. We grow vegetables organically on 24 acres in Horsham. We give thousands of pounds of fresh produce to local food cupboards (5,300 pounds in 2016), helping to provide nutritious food to community members who are food-insecure. We teach the community about the value of sustainable agriculture, where their food comes from, and how to improve family health through cooking and eating well. We have a unique education collaboration with The College Settlement of Philadelphia, our land host. Our collaborative camp programs offer a farm experience to children from the greater Philadelphia area, especially those who are economically disadvantaged who often don't have any previous knowledge of where food comes from. Their delight in picking blackberries from the vine or digging out carrots is a pleasure to see. Our kids education program includes an “Edible Classroom” at our farm site which contains fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers for children to taste and explore.

TRAINING RUNS

Phil's training runs are Sundays at 7:30AM beginning May 14th. It's a great way to get to know the course and meet other local runners. We'll meet in front of the red barn for a quick photo and run the first mile together before splitting up into different pace groups. Group leaders make sure that everyone stays on course and finds their way back to the starting area without incident.
