Hobart's Run by the River, 2022 edition, is like the other editions: perfect for athletes of all ages and abilities.

The 2022 Hobart’s Run by the River isn’t until Nov. 13, but the time for first-time sponsors to come aboard is now. And returning supporters can again ride the current of goodwill the event engenders by participating again.

The funds certainly go to a worthy cause: Hobart’s Run uses the proceeds to engage in its ongoing neighborhood improvement efforts:

  • Creating a safe, clean community
  • Incentivizing home ownership
  • Generating quality business development
  • fostering inclusivity

“For those who have contributed to prior Hobart’s Run 5ks, we thank you wholeheartedly, with the hopes you can again support this family-oriented event – the primary fundraiser for all our collaborative neighborhood improvement initiatives,” said Cathy Skitko, Hobart’s Run Director of Hobart’s Run Communications and Community Relations.

“If you have not previously served as a sponsor,” she continued, “we ask that you consider taking part in the Run for the River, which supports programs such as our Adopt-a-Trashcan program, Façade Improvement Grants, Business Incentive Grants, and Homeownership Improvement Program, as well as outreach that benefits area children and families in need.”

Hobart’s Run has incentivized sponsorships, which must be engaged by Oct. 27, as follows:

  • Gold Sponsors ($500):
    • A 4×4-inch logo on the race’s official Dry-Wick t-shirt
    • Published recognition in print and on social media
    • The opportunity to include business cards, menus, coupons, and such in race packets. These materials can either be dropped off or scheduled for pickup
  • Silver Sponsors ($250):
    • 2×2-inch logo on the race’s official Dry-Wick t-shirt
    • Published recognition in print and on social media
  • Bronze Sponsors ($100) and Copper Sponsors ($10–$99): published recognition in print and on social media

All details regarding the 2023 Hobart’s Run by the River are online, including sponsorship signups (whose deadline for inclusion of branding on race materials is Oct. 27) and race registrations (which remain open until just before the Nov. 13 start but which contain discounts and perks for early participants who sign up before Oct. 27).

The 9:00 a.m. event (8:00 a.m. registration) on Nov. 13 is open to both runners and walkers. The start line is at Riverfront Park on the Schuylkill River Trail (SRT), 100 College Drive, Pottstown.

“Thank you again for showing your Pottstown pride through your interest and support,” concluded Skitko.
