Other Race Results
Chris Mateer took on the Breakneck Point Trail Run this past Saturday and brought home 2nd place despite an early off course detour. Breakneck was a true trail race and a bit out of the norm compared to PRTC’s usual race repertoire. “Breakneck Point (features) steep pitches, one with hand over foot climbing, technical rock sections of trail, and significant cumulation gain. It’s also one of the more beautiful w/ panoramic river and mountain vistas, beautiful and historic singletrack, and the staging for a grand adventure for runners of all levels.” Chris covered the race’s 12 kilometers in 2:24.19. For more on the course see our social media feature. Nice job Chris!
Last Call: Valley Forge Rev Run

Valley Forge is well-placed as a final Broad Street tune up and it’s always fun to visit the historical park. Importantly, a $10 post-race brunch at McKenzie’s Brew House is offered to all runners.
