9:15 AM Start for the Dirty Pony
Join us Memorial Day Weekend for the Charlie Horse Trail Half-Marathon to benefit Berks Co. Special Olympics.  This is a point to point race which will require you to get to the finish, rather than making it an option to NOT finish.  Read More...

Sunday June 30, 2024 8:30 am (Start time staggered by age group)
Join us for the running of the only trail race with an age graded start (that we know of) on the east coast.  Sure, you run the local trail races and are happy to compete and maybe place in your age group. But what if that effort let you win the whole Chase? Have you ever said, “I could have beaten that guy in my prime”? Are you as fast as you once thought you were?   Read More...
