The HARRCley

WEEKDAY: Friday, June 9th

TIME: 6:30pm


Zeroday Brewing Company

250 Reily St, Ste 103, Harrisburg, Pa 17102


June’s Full Moon Run is more than just a group run, it’s the 1st HARRCley – our HARRC homage to the Barkley Marathons!!

We will meet at Zeroday Brewing Company.  Runners will have to locate 4-5books strategically placed around the midtown/downtown areas and retrieve the pages that correspond to their assigned bib number.  After retrieving all pages, runners will return to home base, receive a new bib number and go back out to retrieve a new set of pages from the books.

Each runner will determine their own race route/course – you just need to come back with all of  your pages.  (We have determined a loop that’s between 2-3miles that will get to all of the books, but it’s up to you to find your own way…)

Runners will register on-site and the entry fee is a non-perishable food item that will be donated to New Hope Ministries and Bethesda Mission.

Prizes will be given to the runner who makes it back the fastest, the runner who gets all pages with the least mileage and the runner who gets all pages with the most mileage.
