New Membership Renewal Now Active
As announced in previous updates and at last week's General Membership Meeting, beginning in January 2014, BRRC will renew all members at the beginning of the year. This change will allow the Club better management of membership and qualification for the Grand Prix Series and other Club awards.
To make the renewal process more convenient, renewal is now open. Plus, if you renewed or joined anytime in December, your membership is active through 2014. Thank you for your understanding as we make this change.

Happy Holidays from BRRC!
During this holiday season, we appreciate the value of our running friendships, the companionship provided by our training groups and group runs, and the friendly competition of our many races. Most importantly,
we appreciate the commitment to running and to the club of our members and tireless volunteers. As you enjoy the holidays, we hope you will tie on the shoes, fit your fingers into gloves, and hit the road as a proud member of BRRC. We look forward to seeing you out there. Happy Holidays from BRRC!
Middle Distance Training Group Winter-Spring Program to Begin Soon
On January 9 at the Goucher College track, the BRRC Middle Distance Training Group (MDTG) will begin its Winter/Spring program. Are you interested in training for one of the Spring half-marathons or perhaps the famous Cherry Blossom 10 Miler? Have you always wanted to try a training group but have never taken that first step? Have you thought about track work as part of your training but failed to get out? The MDTG provides a wonderful opportunity to work with RRCA certified coaches to execute a training program that will help you achieve your race results. And, it's free! All that is required is BRRC membership and a willingness to show up at the sessions and run. All paces are welcome. See here for more information.
