Fifth Annual Pottstown Half Marathon & 5k
Sunday, December 15 at 8:30 am will be the 5th annual running of the Pottstown Half Marathon (with a 5k this year)
The Sly Fox Brewery Pottstown Half Marathon will start and finish at the Sly Fox Brewery and Tastin Room – 331 Circle of Progress, Pottstown. The first 2.5 miles (approx) will be the same as last years course. It will take you down Glasgow Street and wind it’s way down to High Street. You will turn right onto College Drive and then turn right again onto Keystone Blvd. At the end of Keystone, you will merge onto the trail for the first half of the course. Halfway into the race you will turn around and run the same course back to Sly Fox.
The 5k will take place on the Circle of Progress course. 4 loops on the circle. Great for spectators to watch!
Strut Your Mutt 5k and the Glow Run 5k have both been CANCELLED
SFTC regrets that we have had to cancel these two races. See above for information on the Summer Series 5k, the ASICS Mile on High on Labor Day and the Pottstown Half Marathon & 5k in December.
The 4th Annual Pottstown Half Marathon is History
Thank you to all of the runners, volunteers, police, medical and fire department personnel, sponsors, donors, residents and spectators.
What beautiful weather to have everyone come together to create a memorable day. We look forward to seeing everyone next year.
SFTC member Dave Derosa passed away on July 4th after running a race. He was 45 and leaves behind a wife and three children. Dave succumbed while doing what he loved – running and inspiring his family to follow a healthy lifestyle.
Dave took up running eight years ago as part of a science fair project at the school where he was a 5th grade teacher. Since then, he has competed in races of all distances up to the half marathon with plans to complete a marathon this year. A longer term goal was to run in all 50 states and parts of Europe.
Please keep his wife, Wendy, and children in your thoughts.
