Group Runs


Wednesday Night runs meet at 6:15

Now that Berks County has been designated "green" according to Governor Wolf's phased re-opening of Pennsylvania, the Pagoda Pacers will resume our weekly Wednesday Night Runs starting on Wednesday, July 1st. All runs will begin at 6:15pm, and upcoming July locations are listed below.
 
Due to the ongoing public health crisis, however, the gatherings will be conducted somewhat differently in order to ensure adherence with the recommendations put forth by public health officials. All runners MUST SIGN A WAIVER before each run. (We recommend bringing your own pen.) Also, there will be no official, club-sponsored post-run gatherings. Please make sure to read the full list of Guidelines before attending any of our group runs.

LOCATIONS:

–Sept 16: Wyomissing Quarry Soccer Fields: trail and road options
 
–Sept 23: Trout Run Park, Exeter: run on the Exeter Scenic River Trail and Mount Neversink trails
 
–Sept 30: Home Depot, Wyomissing: road run with access to Penn State Berks and Grings Mill trail


Please see our Pagoda Pacer Athletic Club Facebook page for the up to date information on our Weekly Runs.
