BRUNch Running, a group that combines two of the necessities of life – running and eating – has unveiled its calendar for the next few weeks, and let’s just say it involves doughnuts, bacon, waffles, fried chicken and mimosas.
Here’s how it works: For $25 you get a group run, entree, two drinks, tax and gratuity. A dollar from each ticket sold is donated to The Trail Foundation. Buy your tickets at http://www.brunchrunning.com/austin.
Here’s the lineup, straight from bRUNch:
- Feb. 22 – Gourdough’s Public House, 2700 South Lamar Boulevard. Three words: Big. Fat. Donuts. Reward yourself after a trek on the Barton Creek Greenbelt with some exceptional, decadent, heavenly carbs. Your glycogen stores will thank you. And then ask you for more.
- March 1 – The Buzzmill, 1505 Town Creek Drive. Once upon a time, all the way down on Riverside Drive, sat a beautiful log cabin that belonged to a man by the name of Paul Bunyan. Enjoy some plant-based comfort food – and perhaps a bloody Mary or mimosa – after a morning run around Lady Bird Lake.
- March 8 – Zed’s Restaurant, 501 Canyon Ridge Drive. Let your muscles enjoy the sweet sounds of jazz while your stomach enjoys some hot chicken and waffles with whiskey syrup.
- March 15 – Mettle, 507 Calles Street, Suite 100. Southern-themed dishes like grits and fried pork belly sandwiches make that run worthwhile.
