The Houston Striders are hosting a virtual running event, challenging running clubs in Houston to collectively cover the distance from Houston to Boston – 1,842 miles. The details for participating are listed on the Facebook Event. Use the team name “BAYOU CITY ROAD RUNNERS” (spelled out) to be included in our count! Running and walking are both allowed!!
As of 2PM yesterday, only 9 runners/walkers have input mileage under the BAYOU CITY ROAD RUNNERS team name, totaling just under 360 miles, leaving over 1,482 mile to go. Three teams are already over 1,300 miles. We know you are out there running and walking, please get online and input your mileage, it’s not that difficult. While you can input prior days mileage, the Striders have stated that all miles must be input by 11:59 pm this Friday night (July 24). The full time period for the challenge is July 10-24.
