Post-Christmas Wednesday Run
Sadly, Valhalla is closed Wednesday for the Christmas Holidays. Instead, join us at the Gingerman in Rice Village following Wednesday’s run.

**There will be NO MEMORIAL SUPPORTED LONG RUN this Sunday - because it's time for:
Sunday, December 30th
This is the 18th year and the 3rd year for the new site at Sue Leone’s/Alan Svoboda’s Terrace Home (326 Terrace Ave. 77007)

Course Map can be found HERE and will be adjusted for the new start location.
This is open to all BCRR members and guests Start is 6:30 am from The Terrace House. It is a 21 mile single loop route with several ways to adjust the distance. There are 6 water/Gatorade stops (about every 3 miles). A Drop Box for clothing will be located at the corner of Crestwood and Memorial behind the water fountain and will be picked up about 45-60 minutes after the run starts. Dropped Clothes will be placed outside on the back patio.
A full breakfast with adult drinks awaits the finishers. It will be served in the Kitchen Area. We have an indoor and outdoor shower. The Hot tub will be heated and bubbling for those that need some relief.
We ask for a donation of about $8 to help with the cost and a couple of volunteers to help with cooking. So come and join the fun and don’t be late. Front door will be open. Sue & Alan
