Reading Radsport Festival
Top athlete fundraisers earn themselves a special grid call-up on the start. Athletes who raise $100 or more are entered into a raffle containing prizes from our sponsors and local West Reading businesses. Each addition $20 raised over $100 earns you another raffle ticket. There is no limit to your fundraising!
The Reading Radsport Festival is a two-day cycling and running event presented by Tower Health-UPMC Health Plan. The event is hosted by and for the benefit of the Reading Recreation Commission, 2017 PA Agency of the Year.
Saturday, August 3rd is a fun-filled day in West Reading, PA. Amateur cyclists will warm up the course followed by our famous Wheelie Competition by the Bike Life kids of Reading. Dusk will bring out the professional women and men to the West Reading Criterium course with high-speed entertainment just out the door of everyone's favorite hang out spots.
Sunday, August 4th will be a day for everyone in City Park. Cross Country Running in the morning, Cycling up Mt. Penn, an Uphill Dash to the Pagoda, Kids run on the new City Park Dirt Course, and exhibition cyclocross and mountain biking are all taking place. Spend the afternoon in City Park as we will have a beer garden, food trucks, live music, and plenty of chances to hang out.
We are raising funds to build a walk-in refrigeration unit to store food that serves the Greater Reading Area at 320 S 3rd Street (Spruce Street Campus). Top fundraisers in the Category 3/4, Professional Women, and Professional Men's fields will earn themselves special notoriety with call-ups in front of the crowd.
All raised funds will go directly to the Reading Recreation Commission.
