I’ve been running the Race Street Run 15K for years, in 2009 I placed in my age group for the 4 miler.
The race takes place in the Pennsylvania Poconos in the town of Jim Thorpe, PA. The race offers both a 15K and 4 mile option for $25 pre-registration and $30 closer to race time. There are staggered starting times, 8:30am for 15K and 8:45am for 4 miler. Both courses are an out and back and include different surfaces of road, gravel trail and soft crushed trail. The first 4.65 miles are uphill. (Look at the elevation photo below)
This is a small town race and does NOT offer chip timing. The starting line is a gathering on Broadway, however, there is an official finish line but no finish party. There is ample race support with 4 water stations and a run through sprinkler along the 15K course. This is the first year this race has offered online registration.
It’s an easy start, inexpensive race, I would recommend this race for training, scenery and fun.
