The Yuengling Light Lager Jogger 5K featured thousands of runners and even a marriage proposal Saturday in Pottsville.
This is the third year for the event that had runners from 33 states and the District of Columbia. The race started at 9 a.m. but before then, people were busy getting ready for the event organized by CK Running LLC, Philadelphia.
Cathleen Klassen, 44, of Hummelstown, a Pottsville native, was getting ready to run again this year, her third year doing so.
“I love coming home. I love having a chance to see people I grew up with,” she said.
