Please join friends, family and neighbors in our annual road race, which is part of the Town's Fall Street Faire, which is a great way for our friends and neighbors to get together for some fun as we return from the summer vacations. The Fall Street Faire includes kids activities, live music, a chili cook off, antique cars, a beer sampling area sponsored by Grumpy Doyle's, local food and craft booths.
The course for the race is moderate. Approachable for causal runners, but also a great speed challenge for the pros. The course starts at Washington Park and winds through some of Reading's most beautiful neighborhoods, including Hillcrest Avenue, Oak Street, Walnut Street and Summer Avenue.
Times to beat are: 15:57 for Males and 19:40 for Females.
