LIMERICK TOWNSHIP, PA – Summer’s off to a flying start with the return of The Saucony Mile race down the airport runway this Friday.
The Chester County Running Store and the Saucony Shoe Company is hosting the run along the Heritage Field Airport landing strip in Limerick for the second year in a row. The address is 50 Airport Road, Pottstown.
The runway will be open to the community from 6:30 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. on Friday for several mile-long races. Race divisions include elites, standard age groups and a kids’ category. About 200 people ran at last year’s event and race director Don Morrison is hoping to have just as great a turnout this year.
“It was very successful…we got a lot of response about how fun it was,” he said.
