Runner of the Month
The first Races of 2019!
The race applications are now available for the first two races of 2019. Click below for a copy of the application.
Hang Over Classic 5k at noon on January 1. This course starts at the Sly Fox Brewery at Circle of Progress, but leaves the circle and heads down and back on Glasgow Street.
Super Bowl 5k at noon on February 3. Remember that feeling from last year of running a 5k and then going home to watch the Eagles WIN THE SUPER BOWL. No promises this year on who will be playing in the game, but sign up for the 5k just to be ready.
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.
