We’ll meet in the parking lot of the Brea Sports Park at 6:00 p.m.  It is located at 3333 E. Birch St. on the NW corner of Birch and Valencia.   (Note:  If parking is not available at the Sports Park…park in the elementary school parking lot located just west of the Sports Park.)  We’ll be in the Eagle Hills neighborhood of Brea for our 2nd holiday run of the season!

The directions for this run appear very long, but that is partly because there are a number of cul-de-sacs that we will run to the end of and then turn around.  When this is the case…you will see “180°” in the directions.  Please don’t let the long directions scare you from showing up!  It should be a nice run with lots of pretty lights!!!

Yosemite Half Marathon (October 8, 2016):  Rick just resgistered for next year’s race.  He said that if anyone is interested in running this, they have plenty of room for those that need a place to stay – 1 double bed, 2 twin beds, 1 couch, 1 futon and plenty of room for sleeping bags.  They made a change to the 2016 race.  The 1st 5 miles will be on a trail with the remaining 8 on a 2 lane road.   This year’s race had all 13 on the 2 lane road.  Looks to be a great change!  Rick registered as a club member – Brea Runners  If at least 5 people register as Brea Runner club members…they will get a discount.

Rick wishes everybody a ‘Merry Christmas’ and he hopes to make it down south next year.
