The Woodlands Running Club (TWRC) is a non-profit running club located in The Woodlands Texas, just North of Houston for runners of all abilities. If you are looking for track workouts, long runs, marathon training, 5Ks, fun runs & social events, trail running and running trips, you have found the right place.
TWRC promotes the running community in many ways, including hosting club runs, open social runs, races, and social events; engaging in community and charitable activities; and encouraging younger runners through our scholarship fund.
My name is Lauren Ross and I'm the Women's Long Distance Running Chair for the Gulf Association of USATF. The Gulf association has a reputation for producing top youth track athletes and focusing energy on that group. Myself and two colleagues, Calum Neff and Robert Goyen, would like to expand that description to include an inclusive yet competitive circuit of post-collegiate runners as well.
Happy New Year!
Sunday run group starts the year right!
