B3R Sports was created to help local schools with event management for cross country meets. What started off with a few small road races in Lake City and Gainesville has turned into cross country invitationals and hosting multiple regions with 50+ teams and 1800+ athletes per event.
B3R is named after my four kids. Braxton, Bauer, Beckham & Reese. My kids and beautiful wife are very active in helping put on the events.
