Membership

We’re a fairly informal running group. We get together and run. After the runs we like to go out for a coffee, beer, meal or any excuse to sit around and socialize. We’re open to everyone with no minimum running distances or speeds. The best way to find out where and when we’re running is to sign up on our Meetup.com page (it’s free and takes less than 10 minutes). See you at a run soon.

Join us as a BAR Tender

Our group runs are free, as is our support and friendship. Once you’ve run with us a few times, if you choose, you an do more for and with the BAR by becoming a BAR Tender. As a dues-paying BAR Tender, you will receive a membership gift, the ability to ability to vote in our annual elections, the option to participate in the 1200 Mile Club (and another gift if you complete that challenge), as well as additional discounts at a local running store. In addition, your $20 annual dues will go straight to the BAR and help us continue to provide you with all the great work we do!

To become a BAR Tender, visit our sign up and join online. Being a BAR Tender is a way to help support the club but is not required to join us on our runs.
