Weekend Long Runs Are Back!

by Shaun Luther

The Long Run Committee is resurrecting the club weekend long run.  Initially we will be doing them every other month throughout the year.  For a change of scenery, we typically will be selecting locations a bit outside of Berks County that many people may not be familiar with.

We will plan on having 2 routes available to try to accommodate all paces.  

The first one will be Sunday, Aug 14th, at 9:30 a.m. at Green Lane Reservoir.  We will meet at the Green Lane Red Trail Parking lot off Knight RD (google maps location https://goo.gl/maps/XUC6SbzR1tZKJsrB6).  The longer route will go around the lake (10-12 miles), and a shorter route (6-8 miles) will stay on the north side of the reservoir.  All paces are welcome.
