Since its inception in 2006, the BMRC has seen some big changes. Sure there are quite a few of us by now (60+ spread over four states), and many of us still get together for informal runs, road trips, and lots of post-run meals. By and large, though, our membership is made up of busy folks who can't always commit to a set running schedule, meetings, or other things.
In the meantime, several members have gotten together and focused our energies on organizing running events in our area for all comers, with the proceeds benefitting local programs. It has worked out pretty well. Members benefit from discounted entry fees to these events, and the community benefits from the runners who bring themselves, their families, and friends here to Burke County to participate in BMRC events.
Being a member of the BMRC helps us to help promote running and running events here in the Southern Foothills of North Carolina. Being a part of it all is priceless. And yes, you do get a t-shirt. Check out the pictures of some BMRC runners in action in the photo album below. Just click and drag to turn the pages.
