NCR Trail Marathon in Two Weeks

Register Now!
Marathon and Two Person Relay
Saturday, November 28, 8:30 am


Join us on the Saturday after Thanksgiving for the 24th running of the Northern Central Rail Trail Marathon and Two Person Relay.  The race will begin at 8:30 am at Sparks Elementary School.  The course follows Belfast Road to York Road south to Sparks Road to the NCR Trail.  The next 22 miles of the race are run on the NCR Trail, from Sparks to Bentley Springs, and then back to Glencoe Road back to the finish.  It is a flat, fast certified course that produces many Boston qualifiers. 

Complete information can be found at the NCR Trail Marathon website.

Volunteers are needed for the race.  The morning is a great experience for club volunteers.  If you would like to volunteer, contact Brian Flowers.



Seeking Board Members!

As we approach December and our 2013 General Membership Meeting, we are looking to you, our members, to solicit your interest in helping BRRC in a unique way, by serving on our Board of Directors or as an Officer.  According to the BRRC By Laws, "The Board of Directors shall manage the affairs of the Club between Club meetings, shall determine the agenda for Club meetings, shall plan Club functions, and shall do all things necessary to maintain the Club as an ongoing organization." 

Beyond this general description, we are looking for Directors who can help manage key aspects of the Club, including communications (e.g. website, newsletters), accounting, membership, race directing, and event planning.  We know that many of you have specialized capabilities that can help BRRC be successful.  Please share your expertise with your fellow runners!

The rewards of helping to lead this organization are many, most importantly knowing that you are helping BRRC grow and thrive.

To learn more or to place your name on the ballot for December's meeting and the election of 2014 Officers and Directors, contact us.

We look forward to your participation.

BRRC Hot News

A hearty "Congratulations" to BRRC member runner Graham Peck, who finished this year's ING New York City Marathon in 2:32:08.  Graham finished an amazing 40th overall, and he was the 11th American to finish in a race that attracted more than 50,000 runners.  Graham finished 1st in the 20 -24 age group.  With this result, Graham has clearly established himself as an elite American runner.  When you see Graham at a Club race, be sure to offer congratulations.

New Renewal Schedule

Please note that beginning in January 2014, BRRC will renew all members at the beginning of the year.  This means that your renewal for 2014 will be due in January.  This change will allow the Club better management of membership and qualification for the Grand Prix Series and other Club awards.  Thank you for your understanding as we make this change.
