The Annual Hobart’s Run 5K takes a new path this year on Sunday, November 14: The beautiful Schuylkill River trail will be the location for “Hobart’s Run By The River,” the nonprofit’s primary annual fundraiser.

Hobart’s Run By The River will provide a flat, easy run compared to the hilly course used in previous runs, looking to attract a greater number of participants—from beginners, youth and families, to seasoned 5K enthusiasts of all ages.

Registration will begin at 8 a.m. at the Riverfront Park Pavilion, located at 100 College Drive in Pottstown, and the run will begin at 9 a.m. An awards presentation for various age brackets top three male and female winners will follow at 10 a.m. in the pavilion.
