BRRC Races and Routes
Race Series: To promote and reward consistency in running in a variety of distances throughout the year, selected racing events are designated for this motivating competition. Only current BRRC members are eligible to participate. See Race Series for all the details.
Partners in Pain: A unique 5K run held on the second Sunday in February. Team up with a partner of the opposite sex. Your combined ages determine your age-group. Competitive teams eligible for age-group awards. Individuals and non-competitive teams are invited to participate. Awards also given to the top male and female individual winners. Show your dedication to running by participating in this mid-winter event. Post-race prize drawings with great donated prizes are held.
St. Paddy's Five: A five mile run on the March Sunday closest to St. Patricks day. It starts and finishes at the Spokane Community College. This is a qualifier for the Bloomsday second seeding, so a lot of speedsters show up along with those dressed up in the costumes and the green colors of St. Patrick's day. Post-race prize drawings with great donated prizes are held.
Recycle Run: A 4-mile run held at the end of March. Bring no-longer-needed running apparel and shoes for "recycling" to those in need. Trophies and safety pins are also accepted. Winners receive refurbished trophies and ribbons. This is a good way to show your support of the recycling effort.
4th of July Fun Run: Start at the Moran Prarie School for a challenging 5 mile run. 8am on the 4th of July. Donations accepted.
Let's Climb a Mountain solo and relay: A 34.3 mile solo or relay run from the Clocktower at Riverfront Park to the top of Mount Spokane. This is a challenging course with a vertical gain of 3370 feet.
The Toaster Splash: A unique 5K cross-country race over trails, through the woods, and a creek on the Mulvania Estate in Deer Park, WA. The famous "Toaster Start" (bread is placed in a toster and when it is toast and pops up, the race begins!) has provided this race with a cult following! This race is USATF sanctioned.
Newman Lake: A challenging yet beautiful 25K run around Newman Lake. Views of Newman Lake and the surrounding countryside are seen on this undulating course. This is a hilly and challenging course with occasional flats. A shorter 5K fun run is also available. A fantastic breakfast buffet is served afterwards by the lake!
The Half-Fast Ultimate Runner: There is no other running event like this. This IS the ULTIMATE. It is fun for the runners and a great way for volunteers to learn some of the basics of timing runs and how to work a stop watch and chronomix. Each runner must do all the events to finish and be eligible for awards. 5k, 400 meters, 100 meters, a mile, and a 10k.
Sundae Sunday 10 Miler: The first Sunday morning (8am) after Labor Day in September, starting at Dwight Merkel . The course has been a tradition, heading out Northwest Blvd., down Meenach hill, going by Downriver Golf Course, through Riverside State Park, to Francis and back to the start at Albi Stadium. Ice cream sundaes await the finisher and the volunteers. This is another great opportunity to help keep a quality running event in existence--there are many volunteer opportunities here.
Colbert Autumn Classic: This is truly a classic event. 13.1 miles of hills and dales, on paved and gravel roads in the Green Bluff area where the pumpkins are turning orange. There is a special division for anyone who cares to enter- Healthy but Heavier for men over 200 lbs and women over 150 lbs. Sweatshirts and apples for finishers. Colbert Half Map 2016.pdf
