Falls Road Running Update
- Supported Course Run July 24, Visitor Center next to the Light Street Pavilion at the Inner Harbor. First half of the Baltimore Marathon Course. Distances 8 to 14 miles.
Two-person 10 Mile Relay Saturday, July 31. Baltimore Road Runners Club event. Falls Road Running is the lead organizer. Categories – open, masters, and co-ed teams. Each person runs a mile before exchanging with their partner. Loch Raven High School track. (The event is held at Loch Raven because their track is a 440 yard track, four laps to the mile. Most other tracks are 400 meter tracks, a few feet short of a mile.) Details at www.brrc.com.
Mark your calendars for a half-week long celebration August 11 to August 15. On August 10, 2000, Fred Bechman bought a pair of Size 12 Brooks Trance from Falls Road Running Store, our first sale ever. It has been brought to our attention that we have never had a Grand Opening, so we have decided to have our Grand Opening on our tenth birthday. More details later!
The second supported course run on the Baltimore Marathon Course will be on Saturday, September 25. Short course is about 12 miles, long course up to 24 miles…all on the marathon course.
The Falls Road 15K will be a week later on Sunday, October 3, in Druid Hill Park.
We are working on a Jones Falls Restoration Run in November, for right now all I can say “Stay Tuned”.
We are working on the active. Com site for the Celtic Solstice right now. The cost of this year’s race is quite a bit more expensive to the organizers than in previous years, and we are working through some budget issues. The premium is really, really nice though!
Last but not least, Falls Road supported a team of film makers who wandered the Australian Outback for six weeks. They are now in a final stage of online voting competition. I would very much appreciate it if you took a couple of very valuable minutes to cast a vote for Team 6, Northern Territory, Willie and Andrew. You can vote here: http://vantastic.worldnomads.com/
