Who wants to help break a Guinness World Record? Well, that’s what we are about to do!   Education is the key to the future, but many families cannot afford to give their kids the supplies needed to be successful in school.

Announcing: The Vanishing Half-Marathon!

  Potterhead Running Club is pleased to present our fourth event of 2019: The Vanishing Half-Marathon!

It’s More Than a Running Club.

When we explain to newcomers that virtual running events don’t have “winners”, that may not be entirely true. While our events are self-paced, and there is no competitive or ranking aspect to a Fanthropy virtual run, that doesn’t mean we aren’t surrounded by champions…like Bethany.⁣ ⁣ She’s been a PHRC runner since 2015, with walking and running in countless events has been a part of every year to date. That alone makes her an inspiration to her “housemates”, but after […]
