Rain, snow or shine, Pottstown’s Funky Santa 5K Run and 3-person 5K Relay takes place this Sunday, Dec. 2nd at 9:15 am at Montgomery County Community College’s West Campus. Plug 101 College Drive into your GPS and that should get you there.
This is the 3rd annual Funky Santa 5K and is part of Pottstown’s Hometown Holiday Celebration! I ran it last year, and besides being funky – people dress up in holiday-themed costumes – it’s a fun way to get your exercise over with for the day.
Race day registration will be held from 7:30-9 am. The 5K costs $20 or $45 for a relay team of 3 people.
The 5K and the relay start at the same time. The Fun Run will immediately follow the 5K. There is NO charge for the Fun Run, so this is a great opportunity to get the little ones on the road and feeling the excitement of race day.
There will be refreshments after the race for all competitors and there will be plenty of awards in various age categories, male & female divisions. Dress for the holidays in your funkiest & finest and you, too, could be a winner! Then there are other random prizes that make this feel like a race where just about everybody wins. Let me put it to you this way: last year I got a trophy for finishing second in my age group. (I later found out that there were 4 women in my age group — woo-hoo!!) Unfortunately, my knees are feeling creaky, so I’m not sure I’ll be running this year…
