I'm sure many people are wandering what in the heck is taking so long to get BARA up and running (haha) again as a real club. Since August we have been steadily gathering information and getting our ducks in a row and we are nearly ready to officially apply to be a chapter of the Road Runners Club of America. Once we have that done, we will be able to move forward. We hope it will not be much longer before we can officially accept new members!
In the meantime, all our events and activities are open to everyone. We have a couple of ongoing events that you can take part in:
Food drive. On behalf of Hoosier Hills Food Bank, we have placed a collection barrel at Indiana Running Company. It will be there through group run on Monday night, December 1. Please help us make it overflow! The store will be closed on Thanksgiving Day and will reopen an hour early (9:00 a.m.) with Black Friday sales.
Holiday running challenge. We're challenging you to run at least a mile every single day between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day. The holidays are a stressful, busy time, and it seems we're in for another tough winter. We want to help you stay motivated! Join the challenge Facebook group to get started.
We're not holding our usual group runs on Thursday or Sunday this week. We'll resume next week on Monday. We hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends.
