BCRR Birthdays This Week: Nancy Greig (March 3), Jason Burris (March 4) and Jennifer Naples (March 9).
* = New age group
This Saturday is the Bayou City Classic 5K/10K downtown. Not only is this a HARRA race where you can earn HARRA points for BCRR by running or volunteering but it is also one of Houston's oldest (more than 30 years) and best races so don't miss this event. The proceeds from the Bayou City Classic go toward helping maintain and develop trails for running and walking in our city parks. Last year this race was able to raise and donate $35,000 for the Houston Parks & Recreation Department.
Ash Wednesday is this week and the First Christian Church will be having evening services that day. If you plan to run and/or meet at Valhalla this Wednesday you will need find another place to park. Parking at the Greenbriar Lot (Entrances 13A and 13B) is only $1.
Happy Hour (March 7, 2014, 6:30PM): Join us for happy hour at Kay's Lounge, 2324 Bissonnet Street, 77005.
