Let's run in Brooklyn and have beers after

We had so much fun running the Cherry Tree 10 miler last year, we decided to run it again!Team Beer Club will be in effect at Prospect Park on Feb 16.  This race can be run as an individual 10 miler or a three person relay (3.33 miles each).

Last year we had one relay team (Jason, Eddie and Nephi) and Christian and I braved the cold and did the entire 10 miler. We also had several athletic supporters come out and cheer us on.

Our beer club athletic events tend to be fun, so, if you want to run the 10 miler, RSVP here and answer the question you'll see during RSVP -"10 miler or Relay"- with "10 miler", then register yourself at the race website below.

If you are interested in the relay, RSVP here and answer the question "Relay".   If we get enough people to run the relay, I'll work with you to coordinate registration for the team.  If we don't get enough for a team, we'll figure something out.

If you want to come out and support the team, but not run, just answer the question in some other way.  Extra points for creativity.

So come out to the race and cheer on Team Beer Club. The race should be done before noon. If you are interested in running or just coming out to support, let me know.

Here's the link to the race website:

http://pptc.org/2014-cherry-tree-10-miler-and-3-person-relay/

As far as doing something after the race, we'll see how many people we get and that will determine what we do/where we go.  Regardless, it will likely involve beer.

Hope to see you out there in beautiful Prospect Park.

Cheers!

Bill

    It looks like the weather is not going to cooperate tomorrow. It is going to be 20 degrees at race time, so I don't think anyone would be interested in standing outside for a couple of hours to cheer on any runners. Additionally, 2 of 3 people on the relay team dropped out so based on that, I'm going to cancel this meetup.

    There is another meetup in the afternoon at 3:00 on the Lower East Side, so if you signed up for this one but want to go to the other one, just stop by. Don't worry if there's a waiting list.

    How does one go for beers but not run?

    February 10, 2014

    • Bill

      Come out and be an athletic supporter and then drink beer!

    Wish I could join you again for this, but we'll be back in Cambodia.

    February 8, 2014

    • Bill

      Aw man, we'll miss you but hope you have a great trip to Cambodia. We'll await to hear your reviews of Cambodian beer!

    Oops I'm a little late in the game, anyone want to join me for the relay before the prices go up tomorrow?

    January 28, 2014

  • Bill

    Okay, I signed up the relay team of Tom, John and Eddie. Entry fee is $25 each. I'll let you guys work amongst yourselves to determine who runs which leg!

    Is anyone interested in doing the relay?

    January 24, 2014

    • Bill

      So far only you and John have said they are interested in the relay. Hopefully we can recruit one more person by Tuesday before the prices go up.

    I'll bring pom-poms.

    I thought that this was Beer Club, not Running Club! :). An out of shape guy like me would probably not make it even the 3 mile relay, so I'm out on that front. However, I'll happily come support the team and drink beer!

    You know I'm usually reliable for the group running events, but alas- I'm planning on running a 1/2 marathon that day down in Myrtle Beach. Have fun & I hope I can join the next run/beer event!

    I signed up for the relay but may be convinced to do the 10 miler. I am in to run regardless.

    January 10, 2014

    • Bill

      Let's see if we can get a team or two for the relay...hopefully we can make it work.
