Announcing: Undesirable No. 2!

  Potterhead Running Club is pleased to present the second event of the 2020 season: Undesirable No. 2! (It’s a 10k.) Our seventh year continues with the infiltration of the Ministry through the “standard employee entrance” — the Whitehall underground public toilets — that the Trio used during their hunt for horcruxes. Disguised as Hopkirk, Cattermole, and Runcorn, they managed to get Slytherin’s Locket, free multiple Muggle-borns awaiting trial, and reclaim Moody’s magical eye from Umbridge. (Quite a busy day!)

Our Next Charity Partner: Water1st International

Can you imagine having to walk 3-5 miles each day to collect water for your family? Over one billion women and girls around the world do this every day, sometimes multiple times a day. ⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ We turn on a faucet, flush a toilet, take a shower, and often never think about the precious resource that is automatically brought into our homes…but to this staggering number of people worldwide, that water is carried — often literally in pots on their […]

The 2020 Event Two Hint #1

Here he goes again! The Headmaster is mincing words, obfuscating the clear theme of our second event, and leading us all down so many dead ends to his own ridiculous delight.

Your registration includes this attention-grabbing 3″ ‘clanker’ (a real bell!) medal featuring the Ukrainian Ironbelly (“Iron-bell-y”…get it?) on one side, and our own version of the Gringotts crest on the other! As with every PHRC […]

Our Next Charity Partner: Random Acts

When we tell people about the positive change our community makes in the world, they’re always curious to know how we find the charity partners we support. It’s a wonderful thing to reply to them that in nearly every instance since our founding, the ideas to support those organizations came from our members. And why wouldn’t we do that? Those members — each of you — share our love of combining fandom and philanthropy to do So Much Good. They […]

The 2020 Event One Hint #2

The Headmaster isn’t messing with you, honestly. He’s playing a perfectly innocent, perfectly well-intentioned game of words.
