B.A.R.S. Club Information
Thanks for visiting the BARS website!
· For our Wednesday night runs, we park in the west end of the Performing Arts Center parking lot (at Brighton High School). There we meet & greet briefly, share announcements, and then we’re off running by about 6:30pm. If it’s too cold or wet to stand around outside, we’ll first meet right inside the pool entrance doorway. During the cold/dark months of the year we will always meet inside first. Also during the darker months of the year we ask that you wear your reflective gear. Note that one Wednesday a month we will NOT meet at the high school but instead meet at the Running Lab store located in downtown Brighton at 328 W. Main St. Keep checking with us to find out when each month; usually it is the 1st Wednesday of each month but not always. All are welcome anytime… we encourage you to come on out and join us!
Some of our members come to the run right from work and need to change in the school locker rooms, so know that the facilities are available for you to use as well. However, please note that when the school is closed (ex: Christmas break, winter break, spring break), often the doors are locked and no showers/bathrooms are available.
· Want to try us out but feel unsure? Don’t worry. Our regular Wednesday-night runners have a fairly wide pace range, so chances are you might be able to follow along with someone. If you prefer, we can also give you a map of our routes to take with you on your run. We have 3, 5, and 7-mile routes. During the dark winter months, you will appreciate Pine Creek’s lighted streets. Click here for the route maps.
· We usually go out to eat after our Wednesday night runs at a local restaurant. Our regular favorite is Red Robin on Grand River near Challis Rd. Keep in touch with us each week to find out where we will be going after our workouts- sometimes we change! If you need to, you can shower and change in the high school before going to the restaurant.
