BRRC thought it was time for a change. Instead of being the Master's Race & Social, this was changed to a new venue and a whole club event, the Holiday Hustle. It is a 5K starting at the Cromwell Bridge end of Loch Raven Drive. Race timing provided by Maryland Race Timing. It featured a social brunch at McFaul's Iron Horse Tavern at the conclusion of the race.

Registration: available online on BRRC's website through The Driven. Pre-registration price $6 race only and $10 with brunch. Race day registration $8 race only and $14 with brunch.

The course: A simple out and back along Loch Raven Drive from Cromwell Bridge Road to Providence Road and back. The road was not closed, but traffic was not a problem. Most people who drive this road know there are runners and cyclists on the weekends.

Awards: Top 3 Open male/female, Top 3 Master's male/female, Top male/female in 5 year age groups 50+. No duplicate awards. Poinsettias to the winners!

Results: 63 finishers. Time range 17:54 to 51:18. Mean time 27:39.
