Penn Track & Field and Cross CountrySchool Sports Team in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
You may think Philadelphia is just tall buildings and concrete structures, with fast cars zooming through the city.
For a runner at Penn, the city offers a wide variety of places to train with vast expanses of green space in which you can escape. The Quakers have captured these locations at Penn and in Philly and made them their own. #FightOnPenn
