Running – Roads, Trails, & Gear 101

August 13, 2013

7:00 PM to 8:30 PM

7538 Westheimer Rd (at Voss)
Houston, TX 77063


 

Is this the year you train to run the Houston Marathon? Have you always wanted to “run a half” but didn’t know where to start? Itching to take your trail shoes out of the closet and onto the dirt? Let us help you get out on the roads and trails!

We’ll show you where to run and trails to check out in the Houston area. Demonstrations will show which shoes are best for your type of feet and what running gear keeps you cool. We’ll talk about common running injuries and causes. Let us help you get you on the right “track” for your next running adventure. Find us in the back of the store in the warehouse area. 


 

Tonight we will have several guest speakers on hand to answer your questions.  From run/walking, to injury prevention, to running a marathon (or further) and training barefoot – bring your questions you want answered!

 

7:00 pm REI 7538 Westheimer Rd., Houston, TX 77063. For more information or to RSVP: http://www.BayouCityOutdoors.com / 713-524-3567 / kelly@bayoucityoutdoors.com Find us in the back of the store in the warehouse area.

FAQs

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Typically most BCO events are for adults.  But, we do love kids.  If you believe your child is capable of keeping up with the group, no problem.  AND if this is a bike ride they MUST wear a helmet.  Questions?  Contact us at info@bayoucityoutdoors.com 

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

We add parking details to the Event descriptions.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

If the temperature is above 80 or it very clearly says "No Dogs" then please don't bring your dog.  We LOVE dogs and only make this rule if we feel there could be a safety concern (for the dogs of course:).

BIKE: If it is a bike ride: Bring a helmet or borrow one from us.  Helmets are the single most important piece of gear you can have on a bike ride.  Anyway, any time you are wearing a helmet you must be having fun!  

Bring water.  Frequently our events are in the woods or out of the way.  Water is important.

HIKE: If it is a hiking event wear comfortable shoes.  Athletic shoes, hiking boots, running shoes, just be sure your feet will be happy.

SOCIAL: If it is a social event?  Wear whatever YOU feel comfortable in.  We are an eclectic mix of people with all types of interests and jobs.  People will come straight from work in a suit or jeans, straight from running or working out, and some of us even come cleaned up straight from the shower!  (and everything in between)
