VIRTUAL Bayou Bash Relay - June 22nd to 28th
Due to the social distancing restrictions for COVID-19, the traditional Bayou Bash Relay & HARRA Family Picnic have been canceled. HOWEVER - the VIRTUAL Bayou Bash Relay will be held June 22nd to 28th. This will be a FREE event courtesy of Bayou City Road Runners. The format of 4 person by 2 miles will remain the same. However, each leg can be run solo and the team captains will compile each runner’s activity for a total team time. Teams will submit a photo/screenshot proof of each relay leg by Strava event or Garmin GPS that must include distance and total time. Families are also encouraged to form their own teams and participate! 

Entries will be submitted on the Bayou Bash Relay Website 

BCRR Age Group Captains will be contacting you shortly to form teams for participation!!
