It's time for our annual run to the Pagoda! Join us on Saturday, December 23rd (weather permitting) as we run to the Pagoda and spread cheer through Reading along the way! This is a private club only run and free of charge. However, we are taking monetary donations for the food bank at Bethany Lutheran Church.
We will start and end our run from the store this year. Will have drinks and snacks for everyone in our new upstairs event space.
We will send people off at different start times so that we arrive at the top together at approximately 10:00am for our annual group picture. Please read the details below on pace groups.
It is approximately 3.5 miles from the West Reading Playground to the Pagoda. We expect 15 minute milers to take about 52 minutes, 12 minute milers to take 42 minutes, 10 minute milers to take 35 minutes, 9 minute milers to take 32 minutes and 8 minute milers to take 28 minutes. Due to these estimates (with a 10 minute buffer added) we created the following start times for each group. Please sign-up for your respective start time.
15 minute milers = Depart for Pagoda at 8:45 am
12 minute milers = Depart for Pagoda at 8:55 am
11 minute milers = Depart for Pagoda at 9:00 am
10 minute milers = Depart for Pagoda at 9:05 am
9 minute milers = Depart for Pagoda at 9:12 am
8 minute milers = Depart for Pagoda at 9:16 am
We are excited to continue this tradition and we can't wait to see you on the 23rd!!! Please obey all traffic rules and stay on the sidewalks through the city once we start climbing the main road to the Pagoda please run against traffic and cross over to run with traffic at the blind spots.
