Runners love to eat. After a good hard run, runners want to reward themselves with tasty bites and refreshments like eggs benedict and mimosas. Last December, bRUNch Running launched its Austin chapter. bRUNch is a running group that brings together people that love to run and eat brunch and each Sunday the group meets for a training run at a local restaurant. After the run, the fun continues back at the restaurant with the ultimate brunch experience and post-run socializing. The group always offers a 5K and 10K route, while bRUNchers are encouraged to run any distance they want and welcomes runners of all abilities. While some bRUNchers have never run a 5K, they also have those who are marathon veterans, and pride themselves on creating an environment in which you can run at your own pace, and for as many miles as you crave! So, how does bRUNch work? Start by visiting www.brunchrunning.com/austin. Select the event you want to attend and register. Tickets are $25 per person and include run, entree, two drinks, tax and gratuity. A dollar from each ticket sold is donated to The Trail Foundation, their non-profit partner. In February and March they have a bunch of awesome events coming up! Gourdoughs Public House February 22 2700 S. Lamar Austin, TX 78704 Three words: Big. Fat.
