Big May Newsletter
New Opportunities, New Info and new Management.
Well as the first half of the year is coming to a close it is time to re-organize the group and start the process of adding people into the fold of the Houston Area Trail Runners. With that being said I will be adding Sarah Talley and Bhakti Chavda to the HATR management team. As I am now back to running full time again Jeremy will start to lead the groups back to normal runs as well. So over the next 30 days we will start to define the roles and start with new opportunities for the HATR club.
There are some really amazing opportunities in the next 30 days to volunteer, to run, watch movies and some ways to get connected as well. So now that we are back in full swing come out, meet the HATR gang and lets run some trails.
This week from Wed-Saturday there are opportunities to volunteer with the Memorial Park Conservancy to volunteer.
