Pottstown Half Marathon July 16, 2016
The Second Annual Pottstown Half Marathon is in the books!
There are so many people to thank for making it all possible. Here goes: Thank you to PMMC and all of our sponsors, without your support the race wouldn’t get off the ground; to the Pottstown Police department, for creating the course and then putting a plan in place to make sure runners were safe at every junction; to the fire police and Omega who controlled traffic at crucial intersections; to the water stop staff, who were indispensable on a day as hot and humid as race day; to Reagan Flewelling for singing the National Anthem; to To Love A Canine who provided a large group of course marshals;
Thank you to members of the Sly Fox Track Club who served as volunteers in many capacities; to the residents of Pottstown who came out with their sprinklers, cheering sections and set up their own water stops; to the medical staff who made sure they were nearby when needed; to our photographer, Robert Bolan, who immortalized the event and the participants with pictures; to the volunteers who set up the directional signs and mile markers;
Thank you to the food trucks who provided delicious variety to the post-race refueling process; to All American for delivering the comfort stations; to Sly Fox Brewery for providing space for the Race Expo, free beer after the race and sponsoring the finisher medals;
Thank you to the volunteers who helped with the Race Expo; to the volunteers who came out to pick up litter along the race route; to the couch to 5k runners who were so dedicated in their training and are well on their way to running next year’s half marathon; to the Borough of Pottstown Parks & Recreation department and The Hill School for providing equipment and supplies for cleaning the course; to the volunteers who serve on the race committee and pitch in in many ways large and small; and finally, to the runners who trained and executed once the race started.
