BCRR WEEKLY UPDATE - October 19th to October 25th



BCRR Beach Day - Sunday, October 18th

Thanks to all who joined the BCRR Beach Day! It was perfect weather and perfectly distanced. Stay tuned for our next socially distant social event!


2021 Chevron Houston Marathon & Aramco Half Marathon

This week, the Houston Marathon Committee officially announced the transition of the 2021 Marathon & Half Marathon to a Virtual Event. The BCRR Board is meeting this week to determine a plan to safely support BCRR members as they complete their virtual race. More details to come! 


2020 HARRA Fall Series

The Fall series of Marathon Warm-Up races has begun.  Although most of the races are virtual, HARRA will still be awarding Ironfoot awards to everyone that completes the Fall series.  HARRA will also be calculating points for Club awards.  Club awards are calculated per participation, no times. Since the races are virtual (except for Kia 30K in Sugarland), there will be no team competition.
