Anyone can post runs they are interested in doing, just group fun runs, or official races. If at least 3 people plan to go to an event, I will post it as an event in the BRS calendar. The reason at least 3 people - EXCLUDING ME - need to go, is because the events calendar on the BRS exists, in part, to ensure that if visiting BRS people, or guests, would like to come out to the event, that there are actually BRS members to greet them.
THE ONLY WAY I KNOW YOU ARE GOING IS IF YOU RSVP TO THE EVENT ON THIS SITE. I will remind people to RSVP, once, before making the final count.
The most active people in our group live in, and around Portland - as are most of our events. Also, we mostly run on trails.
I "plan" to have a monthly "meet-and-greet" for new members, but, only if they want to "meet-and-greet" us, which will remain to be seen.
