POTTSTOWN >> The Pottstown Half Marathon returned Saturday for its third year and runners were giving it their all.

With the promise of a Sly Fox beer at the end of their 13.1-mile run, racers pushed themselves through the finish line Saturday after taking off at 7 a.m. Family members and friends cheered along the sidelines of Circle of Progress Drive as participants raced past their starting point, through town, around the circle and on to the finish line to complete their race.

Sly Fox Track Club, who hosts the race, gave out awards for the top times for both men and women following the race.
