Belleville Running Club Awesome Member (BAM) Award

The goal of the BRC Awesome Member (BAM) Award is to encourage all members to:

  1. Volunteer at BRC events
  2. Attend BRC meetings (yes, we have to bribe you to attend our meetings)
  3. Show your BRC colors at other events, namely races

BRC Awesome Member Award points and awards are based on participation in, not results of, these activities. Every January, during our Annual Awards Banquet, the top 10 BAM point-getters will be recognized for their accomplishments and BAM prizes will be awarded.

Most Awesome Rewards

  • 1st place – $125 Gift Card to Toolen’s Running Start
  • 2nd place – $50 Race Reimbursement
  • 3rd place – $25 Race Reimbursement

*The next 7 point-getters will receive a BRC Shirt. Also not too shabby.

  • Members earn the same number of points if they VOLUNTEER at one of these events. We understand that you may be required to wear a volunteer shirt if you are volunteering at a race. If so, try to wear a BRC hat/visor or something. Or just wear your BRC shirt under the volunteer shirt.

  • Members earn 5 points for attending a BRC meeting.
