Social Events for Summer 2022

Save the dates for some fun Pacer social events this summer:

We’ve got some fun events coming up that incorporate more than just running and can involve the whole family!

June 23rd 7pm – Run/Ride/Swim Event @ Wilshire Pool

There’s an extra Thursday in June, so let’s take advantage of it!

Bring your bike & ride or lace up your shoes & run or walk and then take a dip afterwards!

Wilshire Pool has offered to open their doors to the Pacers on Thursday, June 23rd from 8pm-10pm for a moonlight dip! As the saying goes – “The more the merrier”, so we invited our friends in the Reading Area Cyclists group and Fleet Feet Run Club to join us. It’ll be a good ol’ fashion pool party with the who’s who of Reading outdoor enthusiasts!

Guided group run and ride will leave from Wilshire pool at 7pm. Long and short running routes will be available and announced closer to event. 

Event will be held at Wilshire Pool, address below.
