Virtual Alex’s 5K - November 20th-December 20th

Alex’s 5K has gone VIRTUAL!! For those new to BCRR - Alex’s 5K is a race to honor the life of Alex, son of Kathi Mahon & Milan Jamrich. Alex’s 5K raises money for three Autism-related charities: Autism Speaks,  Avondale House and The Westview School. 


Race details and registration can be found HERE! Please help support and participate in this great cause! 


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.

We would like to give a giant welcome to the newest members of BCRR! We look forward to seeing you when club activities resume!
