Training Program Update

BRRC would like to thank its many dedicated coaches for the success of our three Winter and Spring training programs.  The program participants have completed many races, some of them for the first time.  See the newsletter link on this page for complete information.

The BRRC Board of Directors will meet in late May to evaluate proposals for new training programs to begin during the summer months in preparation for Fall races.  Members should check the BRRC website for specific details of upcoming programs.

We are seeking members to volunteer with events in 2014.  There are opportunities for directing races, assisting with races, and helping with club administration.  Our strength as a Club is dependent on the commitment of our volunteers.  Please let us know that you would like to help.
