Road Runners Club of America Runner Friendly community!
City Of Reading, PA has once again been marked as a Road Runners Club of America Runner Friendly community! Along with 14 other cities and towns, all were designated for their community working together to promote running as healthy exercise for residents while ensuring runner safety. We are very proud to be part of a community that embraces physical activity and having running being a part of their active lifestyles and goals!

The Pacers received an A E D for use at our races courtesy of the Reading Hospital for our help at their half marathon this year.

We'd like to thank Brett Lynch and Leonard E. Burton for their services as President and Vice President of our club these past two years. Lots of work and sacrificing of time goes into keeping our club 'running' strong!
