Potterhead Running Club is pleased to present the first event of the 2020 season: Ironbelly 7k! Our seventh year begins with the trio’s thrilling escape from Gringotts and the freeing of the Ukrainian Ironbelly dragon who had been forced to guard the lowest vaults. 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 […]
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 […]
Your final hint to the first event of 2020, and the Headmaster is making no New Year resolutions to be any less confusing on the clues! Tomorrow we reveal the fantastic charity partner that the event will be supporting, and on Saturday…the curtain rises, and registrations go live! This is going to be a massive start to an incredible year, so stay tuned, and stay hydrated!
The Headmaster isn’t messing with you, honestly. He’s playing a perfectly innocent, perfectly well-intentioned game of words. The fact that it makes us all want to cast petrificus totalus on him and rummage through his desk for answers…well, that’s part of the fun, isn’t it? Two more days of clues, a charity partner announcement on Friday, and the first event of 2020 will be known to all on Saturday!
A brand new year, but the Headmaster is up to his old tricks: back to messing with the details on the theme of our PHRC season’s first event! What does it mean? What is he getting at? What exactly is in that candy bowl of his? Three more hints will follow in the days ahead. On Friday evening we’ll announce the next unbelievable charity partner, and on Saturday at 12:00 noon Eastern, the event will be revealed, and our new […]

Potterhead Running Club is thrilled to unveil our year-end celebration: the 2019 Time Turner Event & Felix Challenge! This is your chance to register for those events you might have missed in 2019 and register for the amazing Felix Challenge medal! The Time Turner is NOT a running event and there is no “Time Turner Medal”…this is our way of “turning back the clock” to reopen previous Potterhead Running Club events for the year. Now you can register for […]
Potterhead Running Club is pleased to present our sixth event of 2019: Platform Year Five! It’s back! Our annual nine-and-three-quarter-kilometer virtual running event returns to celebrate Harry’s sixth year with a beautiful new medal representing his adventures getting back to Hogwarts. No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you, the medal isn’t ‘missing’ a piece…it’s just partially covered by an invisibility cloak! The back features Diagon Alley, Weasley’s Wizarding Wheezes, the Petrificus Totalus spell, and even a few wrackspurts. Your event […]
There are so many small things in life we often take for granted. A shower. Clean clothes. Good conversation. Imagine if tomorrow all those simple, small things were gone. Imagine that tomorrow morning you were homeless with nothing but a small bag of possessions and a few dollars in your pocket. Those simple, small things would become luxuries. The value of a shower, clean clothes, and a conversation with a friend would mean more than ever before. Potterhead Running Club […]
Not to “captcha” your attention, but…this is your ONLY Event Six hint! In fact, to add another layer of complexity to this deep, labyrinthine mystery (whatever could it be?), this is also a hint to the next charity partner. Return to this exact spot tomorrow at 7pm Eastern to meet our amazing new charity partner, and then Saturday at noon Eastern, the sixth event begins!
