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 Sunday Group Run, June 4th 2017, VillaSport near Research and Technology Forest Blvd, 6:45 am, 10 miles

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!

Memorial park run and lunch, Downtown Houston, Saturday 2-18-17

02/18/2017 08:00

Several years ago members of the club took a few trips down south to run Memorial park, we want to do this again before it gets hot.

A trip is planned for Saturday Feb 18th. We will meet at Market Street, car pool to Memorial park (park near the tennis center) and go for a run (probably thru River Oaks) and then shower at the tennis center and then for those that are interested, lunch at St Arnold's (or?).

Please email me if you are interested. President [@] TheWoodlandsRunningClub.org

Gulf Grand Prix, a scored series of six races across three disciplines

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!
