PHRC News

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 […]

Pensieve 10k: What Memories Do You Run For?

One of the most emotionally impactful aspects of working with Music & Memory as our charity partner for the Pensieve 10k is how it makes us think about those moments that we never want to leave us. Thoughts of loved ones, irreplaceable events, personal triumphs, all those points in time that define us and drive us. It’s with these wonderful memories in mind that we encourage those who register for the event to tell everyone about them; to share with […]

Announcing: The Pensieve 10k!

  Potterhead Running Club is pleased to present our third event of 2019: The Pensieve 10k! For this event, we’re diving into the mysterious magical object used by Hogwarts headmasters (and Harry, of course) to examine and re-live memories. Legend has it that the founders of Hogwarts found the Pensieve half buried in the ground, and supposedly one of the reasons the school was located in such a remote location. In the dark days leading up to the Second Wizarding […]

Our Next Charity Partner: Music & Memory!

I was four years old and sitting in a warm, loving kitchen in a small house in Neillsville, Wisconsin. My grandmother made me fish sticks and sat at the table talking with me while I ate. It was a perfect moment. It’s one of my earliest childhood memories…and it’s the only one I have of my grandmother before the Alzheimer’s and dementia put her in a nursing home for more than 10 years. Every other memory of my grandmother is […]
