We have a lot of exciting activities in store for you this summer! Saturday, July 18, marks the beginning of our fall marathon training group. Your BARA membership gives y
ou automatic access to this group. Whether you're training for a half or full marathon, we can help customize the plan to any fall race. You will see that the plan as written aims for the Monumental Marathon since many BARA members make that their goal race. And don't forget we have a members-only discount code for Monumental! We will also have a tent set up at the finish.
We will communicate much more information to current BARA members via email. Watch your inbox for more, including meeting places/times, routes, and distance options.
Looking a little farther ahead, we're well into planning this year's Bloomington Half Marathon, which will take place on August 29 at 7:00 a.m. at Olcott Park. Mark your calendars!
We will have the route and many other details finalized soon, but we hope to see you at the race and the cookout afterward. This event is FREE for current BARA members and costs only $10 for nonmembers. Race-day registration will be begin at 6:00 a.m. with the race starting at 7:00. This will also serve as our annual meeting. We hope that even if you can't make it to the run, you will come by for the cookout!
Believe it or not, the current BARA executive committee has been hard at work for almost a whole year. That means it's almost time to elect a new executive committee! We will accept nominations from August 1 through 15, and voting will be held via online survey from August 15 through 23. We will announce the new committee at the post-race Bloomington Half cookout on August 29. Look for more information about nominations and voting very soon.
