About Our Race
The Fall Street Five-K was started as a partnership between the Reading Police Department and the Reading Athletic Club as a means for both organizations to give back to the community by providing a recreational element to the Reading Fall Street Faire. The Faire is a non-profit community event. As part of the Faire, the Fall Street Five-K is a wholesome, community-based road race. The race and the Faire are functions of the Town of Reading’s Downtown Improvement and Events Trust, which supports ongoing funding for the Faire and economic development projects in the Town.
