For the 20th year, the Pagoda Pacers will once again be holding the Charlie Horse Trail Half-Marathon to benefit Berks Co. Special Olympics. The race is on the Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend, May 28, 2017. Please consider participating in the race in any fashion (but hopefully paying runners). We have been having wonderful weather the past couple of years and I guarantee another one this year, or at least the bar will be open. Please visit our facebook page to see what you have been missing.

The Charlie Horse is not your typical race. It is a point to point race which will require you to get to the finish, so NOT finishing is NOT option. It is part trail, part road, and part adventure; everything a masochist runner needs. We start at scenic Rustic Park in Birdboro, PA with a sprint through two creeks and meander through the park for about 2 miles. From there we climb up to the Horseshoe trail to start a beautiful 7 mile stretch through woods and farms. But like everything else with this race, it has its own character. At mile 9 you get a break, as the trail runs downhill, wee, and pops out onto the road section. But everything that goes down must come up. I think thatís the way it goes, at least for runners. To translate, we start the uphill section of the road. When you get to the top at mile 11, youíre at Charlieís house (home of the race founder) where the adventure begins. Itís a mystery to us too: lagoons; waterfall; campers; hiker; teenagers, maybe some chores. The only certainty is rocks, mud, and fun. Finally finishes at Sleepy Hollow A.C. where the pool, food, music, drinks, and friends will be waiting. Hope to see you there.

How to Avoid The Porta Potty During a Race

We've all seen it and most of us have done it ... 30 minutes (or less) into a race athletes are already looking for a port potty. The good news is that it doesn't have to be that way. The secret is a proper hydration plan before the gun goes off, and here's how you do it.
