Years ago, when Tristan Edwards Wright first moved here from sunny California, she went to the gym to avoid the piles of snow but her headphones didn’t work. Faced with the prospect of running on the treadmill without distraction, she threw on an extra sixteen layers and went for a run. On the verge of freezing to death, she ran into Paul, whose overwhelming positivity and running spirit not only saved her life but took nearly a minute and a half off her per-mile pace!
Paul Myers is so fast that we couldn’t stop him to ask for any info for his bio. People who claim they’ve caught up to this international man of mystery at random water stations, say that he started running somewhere in the hills of Pottstown. The former celebrity DJ and actor once co-hosted a television game show named “Run for Your Life”, that ran into predictable legal troubles during its pilot season. Although he’s incredibly fast, Paul started SRR out of a deep commitment to all runners, and believes that, through running, we can all make the world a better place.
Michael Ragozzino comes from a long, storied history of incredibly slow runners. A playwright and professor at Ursinus by day, he spends many of his nights plodding along the Schuylkill River Trail muttering under his breath about why in the heck he ever thought a run was a good idea. He got involved with the Schuylkill River Runners after accruing an incredible gambling debt and being forced into charity by a rather warm-hearted mobster. In all sincerity, he runs because he loves how it connects him to both people and nature—exactly what the Schuylkill River Runners is all about.
Schuylkill River Runners is a dedicated group of runners that came together for the betterment of the community. We want to share our Love for running and helping by bringing people together from all walks of life to join forces in the same positive direction. We strive to provide a family oriented, healthy, positive, enthusiastic atmosphere to run, race and socialize while supporting the communities and charitable organizations that are close to our heart's. We hope to utilize our passion for the sport by ascertaining these Goals: Building friendships, positive encouragement and improving ourselves with no regard to age, gender, culture, experience or pace. Let's create unity through running while growing with our shared experiences! NO runner will ever be left behind!!
