Cupid Price Increase, Mid Distance Training

Cupid's Crush Price Increase Tomorrow!

Registration is open for the 3rd annual Cupid's Crush! This is a 5 mile road race that takes place on 2/12 around and over the hills of Druid Hill Park. Debuting in 2014, the Baltimore Road Runners Club hopes to make this the new February classic.

You can view a course map, and find more information here. The first 2.5 miles of the race are nice and fast, the second half? Not so much. Overall, age group and random prizes will be awarded. 

In addition, the first 150 runners that register will receive the coveted 2017 Cupid's Crush Pom Pom Knit Hat! Sign up today - they're going fast! Price increases on 1/12 for non-members. BRRC is also offering discounted pricing for those who want to register without a premium.

10 Mile Club Challenge
The annual RRCA Club Challenge will be held on February 26th in Columbia. This race, hosted by the Howard County Striders, offers a competition among Maryland running clubs on a difficult 10 mile course through Columbia.  BRRC will once again include this race in its own GPS Series.
BRRC pays the race registration fees for this race for current club members. You must be a current member to run this race! If you have not yet renewed your membership, do so before registering for the race. We will only be able to allow current members to run. The race is limited to 1000 runners.  Please note that because it is limited to the first 1000 registrants, you may not get in. BRRC cannot control this situation, as there are many different clubs in Maryland registering runners for the race. Registration closes in February and there is NO race-day registration.

Registration can be found here.
