Back to back club points races?? How’s anyone supposed to recover from that? Oh, I know! Join us for the post race brunch!

So you’ve just ran a whole mile! I hope you stuck around long enough to watch and cheer on most of the other heats where your fellow NBR-mates were battling it out for glory. Maybe you’ve even stayed around to 1pm to watch the last of the professional ladies cross the finish line. Well nothing will satisfy that need for speed you now have like a giant beer and sausage at Spritzenhaus (hey we gotta run for something, right?)
This one’s a little later so you can catch all the action, including the pros.

Marathon training season is a perfect reason for you to race a four miler this weekend! That’s right it’s time for another team points race this Saturday. You know the drill. Come out to run it, come out to cheer it, come out to volunteer it, come out to support the great cause behind this race. But of course, after all that, join us for brunch! We have a whole backyard reserved, so let’s pack it with NBR. Your regular social crew guys are sadly all running other far off races in neighboring states, so special thanks to Erica and Jeffrey who have stepped up to get things going.

New (and old!) Member Happy Hour Wed Aug 6th 7:30-10pm on Northern Territory Rooftop by nbrwebjohn

August 6th 2014,  Wednesday – 7:30 PM
 Northern Territory12Franklin St 11222

Join your teammates for a New Member Happy Hour on April 26th. We’ll be in the backyard at Beloved starting at 6:30 PM.

Hello there all you new pups! Have you been lurking in the Google Group but never been to a run? Do you not know what a fartlek is? Have you been to a couple of runs but never had a chance to really meet anyone?


NBR would like to welcome you to the pack with a happy hour geared especially for those who have recently joined, are thinking about joining, or have been here for years but still don’t know how to use the website! Everyone is welcome to join us on the rooftop of Northern Territory next Wednesday Aug 6th from 7:30 to 9:30/10.

This will be a great opportunity to: meet other new runners; meet some of the veterans; ask any questions you may have about the website, gear, races, tips, or any ol’ thang; or just talk about how awesome the neighborhood is and how smelly Newton Creek is! Seriously, it’s stinky.

You can come straight from home or work, but you can also join in one of the evening road runs and head over with some of the group after that. There is a 7pm Beginners Run (2mi), and a 7:30pm Road Run (intermediate, ~5mi). People will be walking over to the Happy Hour from both of these runs.

We don’t care if you’re sweaty, dressed to the 9’s, old, new, or if you’re stinkier than Newton Creek, we just want to get a chance to say hi! We look forward to seeing you there!

-NBR New Member Coordinators
