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.  


New Members:


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