BCRR WEEKLY UPDATE - December 7th to December 13th



Sunday Long Run Hydration

The Sunday Long Run has been supported throughout the pandemic by a handful of members. Thank you to Loris, Lisa/Avi, Jeff Wittig, & Scott Bounds! Now - we could use some additional volunteers to help keep BCRR hydrated. 


BCRR is looking for volunteers who can drop off & pick up individual water bottles to EITHER the Shell Gas Station or the Rose Garden - 1 or 2 Sundays a month. Please email to volunteer. 


BCRR will reimburse or provide water bottles to the volunteers. 



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! 


BCRR Supported -  

2021 Chevron Houston Marathon & Aramco Half Marathon

BCRR will be organizing a supported Marathon and Half Marathon on Sunday, January 17th, 2021. 


Details for location, set up, and times will be announced at a later date! Participation is open to any **BCRR Member** - Both official virtual participants and supportive running friends are invited to join!


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!
