It's a long weekend! Don't forget to turn back your clock on Saturday night so you can sleep in that extra hour before the River Oaks Run!
On Monday we failed to mention that Brenda Hilton finished First Place, Female, 65-69 in the Half Marathon Race on Sunday.
Sorry to leave your name off Brenda.
Congratulations on running a great race!
Friday 6:30pm: Join us for happy hour at Under the Volcano, 2349 Bissonnet Street.
On Saturday at Noon: Join BCRR for our first packet pickup for Alex's 5K at No Label Brewery in Katy. No Label has been a donor to Alex's 5K since our inaugural race. They have been very generous and we are very grateful. We will be outside the fence for packet pickup, but if you want to take a brewery tour... obviously you will be in good company. Brewery tours are $5.00 for 4 tokens starting at noon. After 2:00 pm, there are only 2 tokens. So come early and have fun with our race committee!
If you are planning to going on Saturday note that Interstate 10 will be closed at Hwy 90 this weekend. If you want to avoid the traffic consider taking the Westpark Tollway to Grand Parkway Hwy 99. Left under the underpass on feeder of Interstate 10 to the Brewery.
We really need your help getting more people to register for the race so get your family, friends and co-workers to register today.
We will be at a new location with a great post race party. Its for a really great cause and all of the proceeds go to charity.
Volunteers are still needed for both the Rockets Run (Nov 9th) and Alex's 5K (November 16th). Please contact Patrick Flaherty (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Rosie (email@example.com) to volunteer for the Rockets Run and Sam McMurtrey (firstname.lastname@example.org) to volunteer for Alex's 5K Race.
Don't forget next week after the Rockets Run, the Fifth Semi-Annual BCRR Croquet Extravaganza will be held at the Memorial Park Croquet Pitch on Saturday, November 9th, from 1:30 to 5. This will also be a volunteer appreciation party for Rockets Run volunteers! BYOB – pizza and snacks provided. Prizes for Top Mallet (the John Phillips Award), Best Dressed (the Sam Pace Award), and Sportsmanship (the Zwick Award). Dinner afterwards at a location TBD. A good time guaranteed for all!
The HMSA Classical 25k and 5K Run is capped at 1,500 runners and the race is expected to sell out before race day. If you have not signed up for this great race please do so today so you don't get left out. BCRR needs your points for the HARRA Club Competition. NOTE: only the 25K counts for the HARRA competition.
