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.

But does any of it work? That's the question science writer Christie Aschwanden set out to answer in her new book, Good to Go: What the Athlete in All of Us Can Learn from the Strange Science of Recovery.
