Attention Alumni Runners!
We are excited that the Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO) has invited BYSO to participate in their Annual Tanglewood Relay Race! Each year members of the BSO gather teams of runners to run over 130 miles, from Symphony Hall all the way to Tanglewood in Stockbridge, MA, to raise money for the BSO youth programs.
This year we are thrilled to be joining the race, and we need YOU to run in our BYSO relay team!
What you need to know:
• Race dates: June 27-29, 2014 (tentatively), rain or shine.
• Runners will commit to running three 5-mile legs of the relay, with support vehicles following closely behind, and scheduled checkpoints along the way.
• Runners will commit to raising funds for their team through family, friends, co-workers and other networks.
