There’s a chill in the air, the mulled wine is flowing, and we can almost smell the turkey in the oven. November in Philly brings some of the city’s best foods and, thankfully, fitness. From Turkey Trots to elegant bike rides, fill your calendar before you fill your plate!
NorFEAST 4 Miler
No better way to kick off the day we feast than a run in the Northeast! Four miles will fly by as you run along the Northeast Airport bike path and, let’s be honest, isn’t the best turkey appetizer a nice little PR on a chilly morning?
Wissahickon Warriors Yoga
If you’ve been meaning to make it out to Wissahickon Brewery, here’s your excuse—every Sunday they host pop-up yoga classes in the brewery! $15 gets you an hour of yoga and a post-class pint, so BYO-Mat and come thirsty!

Art + Yoga
When you’re hitting that Vrikasana just right, you look like a work of art. It’s fitting, then, that this class takes place in a West Philly Urban Art Gallery. Strike a pose (okay, a few), then stick around after class to scope out the art on the walls.

The Ugly Sweater Run
A life-sized snow globe? Fake snow galore? Get ready for your best (s)elfie after running this merry 5k, because the post-run party’s about to be lit. We’re talking giant fireplace, a 40’ tall Santa, and ugly sweaters galore. Ho, ho, hooray!
