2016 GPS Series

Begins January 24th!

 
The 2016 Grand Prix Series begins January 24 with the GPS 8 Miler at Loch Raven. The GPS is BRRC’s annual series of races that encourage age-group competition. There are 8 GPS races run throughout the year at various distances and on various terrains – roads, trails, and track. A runner must complete at least 4 of the 8 races and fulfill a volunteer commitment to count in the final standings and to qualify for an award. 

To qualify for GPS standings, a runner must be an active member of BRRC on January 31st. If you haven't renewed your membership yet, you may do so on RaceIt

Visit our website for important information about the 8 Miler. For complete rules and a list of this year's GPS races, click here.

 



Membership Renewal Period Ends January 31

 
In 2014, BRRC moved to a calendar-year membership system. All members must renew now to be active for 2016. We ask that you go to the registration site and renew your membership between now and January 31. Members renewing by January 31 will qualify for the 2016 Grand Prix Series. For more information on BRRC membership, you can visit our membership page.

Cupid's Crush

 

New course this year!

 
Cupid's Crush is a 5 mile road race that takes place on Valentine's Day around the lake and over the hills of Druid Hill Park. Debuting just last year, the Baltimore Road Runners Club hopes to make this the new February classic. The first 2.5 miles are nice and fast, the second half? Not so much.

You can view a course map, along with pictures of this year's premium here. Registration is now open and attractive moisture wicking tech shirts are available to anyone who registers before February 1st. Prizes include glassware, wine and champagne.

BRRC has partnered with many great sponsors in hopes of providing a top-notch event to all participants in 2016. Join us for questionable Maryland weather and a challenging and fun race.

RSVP on Facebook!

Super Bowl Trail Race
 

What better way to get ready for the game than a great trail race? This race is sure to burn up some of those calories you’ll be consuming later on. Enjoy 8 miles of spectacular trails in the hidden gem of Cromwell Valley Park with rolling hills, a mixture of some fire roads, fields, and mostly single track beauty! The race starts and ends in the Talmar area of the park with a fast downhill finish. You’ll enjoy all nature has to offer, a hot chocolate station just past mid-course, and pulled pork sandwiches after the race! Proceeds of the race benefit the park and the Talmar Group www.talmar.org.

We strongly encourage carpooling for this event. 
Cost this year is $5 for members and $10 for non-members. You can preregister on Ultra Signup here.

Interested in volunteering? Email race director, Bart Rein (bartrein@comcast.net).

    

Team Store


Due to its success last year, the BRRC Team Store is now open through January 31st! We will again be offering BRRC branded running shirts, singlets, knit caps and more!

Here's how it works: You place your order during the weeks while the store is "open." Orders are processed after the store has closed (credit cards charged, shirts are printed, etc). Two to three weeks later, your gear will be shipped or you'll be notified that it's ready for pick-up. It's quite simple. Click this link to check it out.

 
"Please join us for a BRRC member appreciation night at Charm City Run's Timonium Store on January 20th from 6-8PM.  We will provide a fun evening of snacks and shopping to all BRRC members including 20% off accessories and apparel (with the exception of Garmin products), an additional 20% off anything on the sale rack and 50% off past model footwear.  It's our way of saying thank you for your support as we look forward to a great 2016."   |  RSVP on Facebook.
