Save the date! TWRC 2018 Spring Marathon Trip will be The Eugene Marathon in Oregon 4-29-18

UPDATE - The 2018 Eugene Marathon will be 4/29/18

Which conflicts with the Texas IronMan in the Woodlands on Saturday 4/28...

Which probably means we need to find another marathon for the Spring...

Greetings Destination Marathoners

The committee has decided on the Spring, 2018 Marathon which will be Eugene, Oregon.

TWRC Sunday Group Run from VillaSport 6-4-17

TWRC Sunday Group Run from VillaSport 6-4-17

Another GREAT run from VillaSport. We took the picture around 7 am, 10 minutes later the sky's opened up and gave us a shower we will not soon forget. It also lowered the temperature several degrees so it was a fair trade off. A "cool" June run in The Woodlands. Who knew?

BIG Thanks to VillaSport for allowing us once again to use their facility.

2017 TWRC Ironman Run Aid #6 1st shift 4-22-17

I want to thank ALL the volunteers that came out to help at Run Aid #6. Thank you so much for coming out and helping out and cheering for the all the athletes. Ironman could not have happened without you. I think the whole day went very well. We had great weather and no major issues at the aid station, a big change from the weather last year.

BIG THANKS to 2nd shifters that were able to stay late and those who come back to help out 3rd shift. Third shift is always a difficult one to cover and makes for a long day.

I hope you were able to go to the awards banquet and volunteer appreciation lunch. As always, the winner’s speeches were impressive. BIG thanks again to Andreas and Detlef for being co-captains again this year.

Hope to see you next year!
