BARA members participate in a variety of races, ranging from 5Ks like Hoosiers Outrun Cancer and the Magnificent 7 racing series to local half marathons like the Hoosier Half, Indianapolis Monumental, the Indy Half, Mill Race, and our very own, super low-key BARA Half, to full marathons and ultras.
If you have questions about race day preparation, nutrition, strategies, etiquette, or just the low down on local races, there is no better resource than the BARA "brain trust." Contact us or come to a group run and ask away!
