Back to some running weather Houston!
Well Happy New Year to everyone as its been a feverous amount of running lately with the Brazos Bend 100, Snowdrop 55hr and yesterday the Houston Marathon. That is a huge contingency of runners from Houston either on the trails, running in circles or roaming the Houston Streets. Kudos to all of you who ran, crewed, volunteered or paced them.
Well the season of running is among us and it looks like everyone is using the facebook group to communicate on meeting. As most people know we have always been a pretty informal group of HATRs. We might add structure to the group again but we have always just been about running on the trails and giving back. Simple club, no frills and no fees. The more people that hit the trails no matter the pace the better in our minds. Below is some events that are coming up within the next few months that are of interest as well.
We are setting up a big 10×20 tent at Rocky Raccoon as Jeremy “hansome” Hanson will try and regain his pride and finish the race. So feel free to check in and come out to hang out.
On the Jan 23rd Horseshoe Trail Run and any TROT races you can use code HATR for 10% there is less than 120 spots open for the Horseshoe Trail Run so jump in quick as there is amazing shirts, medals, pint glasses and free Karbach Post Race.https://ultrasignup.com/register.aspx?did=33895
