2021 Oley Classic Recap

by Lenny Burton

What a great race!!! Thank you to all the runners volunteers and everyone that helped make this race a great success at its new location. Great indoor facilities, hot food and drinks and the shirts looked awesome as did the awards.  

Andrew Brown, 37 of Fleetwood PA was the 10 Mile winner on the new course, finishing in 1hr 3 mins 4 seconds. Way to go on the big win Andrew!

Congratulations to our 5K winner Mihai Sanchez, 23 of Reading PA for his 18:05 time. 

With over 200 participants, we are proud of the event that we put together. Our proceeds will benefit the Oley Valley Ambulance Association and the Pagoda Pacer Scholarship Fund. 

Thank you to Gallen Insurance, Fleetwood Footcare, Villa Graphics, and our handmade-awards artist Maggie Gallen. Also the RRCA for their continued support and providing the aid station supplies.  

We are looking forward to building on this event next year and are excited about the experience we have learned with the new course and the new venue.

We will have the aid stations earlier in the course and will move the finish line closer to the main grandstand of the fairgrounds. 

I’m already excited about next year and am open to any ideas or suggestions you have to make next year’s event a great one.

Again thank you to all and we look forward to seeing you next year!!
