Saturday Morning Run

It's first Saturday, time to switch up our Pacers Saturday Morning Runs.


This Saturday's Weekend Run will be starting from the Pagoda instead of the Stilling Basin. Address is: 98 Duryea Drive, Reading PA 19602. More directions here:

Same start time of 8:00 AM. It will be a road run with trail options. Distances will vary; 3, 5 or 8 miles.

Time & Location: 8:00AM, Blue Marsh Stilling Basin, lower lot. (Directions:)

Pace & Distance: The club will always have someone leading a roughly 6 mile run, with at least a core group staying together at a comfortable pace that suits the group. But feel free to meet us at 8 and then go longer, faster, a different direction, etc.. it's all good!
We will run from the Stilling Basin on most Saturday mornings, the exceptions being if there is a Pacers race that day. Any cancellations will be posted.

Wednesday Night runs meet at 6:15

Bring lights and reflective wear.
