HARRA’s annual banquet and elections are Sunday, June 29th at the Saint Arnold's Brewery.   
Doors open at 6:30pm and the taps will close at 8:30pm! 
Come hear guest speaker, Steve Costello, former HARRA President and current city councilman.  He'll discuss regional development issues of interest to runners!  You can win the cost of your dinner back with all of the great prizes! 
We’ll have our usual free race entries to raffle off as well as awards for the fall and spring series and top volunteers!
Last but not least is the great dinner buffet catered by Saint Arnold's in addition to as much Saint Arnold's beer as you can drink.  (Don't drink, no worries. You get $10 off if you don't partake.)
