Tour de Bayou & Practice for the Tour

Our Fearless Leader Roger Boak

The very popular (and free) Tour de Bayou cross country series has been coordinated by HARRA in the Spring for the past several years. Four to five races, or stages, are held at different locations within the Loop. Bog hats, bog shirts and bog shorts are occasionally awarded to those crazy cross-country crusaders completing the Tour de Bayou series.

The Practice for the Tour cross country series comprises four (4) stages and is held in the Fall.

The races are free and open to everyone. They are cross country (not on pavement). Distances vary from roughly three miles to five miles. We will provide water and sports-drink. Runners may run any or all of the stages. Results will be posted for individual stages and cumulatively. Overall standings will also be posted.
