Welcome to The Woodlands Running Club sticky icon

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 and 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.

Free TWRC memberships to families hurt by Covid-19

For nine years The Woodlands Running Club has organized and manned Aid Station #6 along the marathon route of the Texas Ironman held in The Woodlands each spring. In September, the Foundation invited us to submit an application for funds that in some way address Covid-19 needs. We applied for money to award 30 free family memberships, prioritizing members who have children in our Juniors Program. The Foundation gave us $2500, almost triple our application. Funds not used by June 30th must be returned, and we have to keep records.

Members, particularly those with children in the Juniors program, who have been financially hurt
by Covid-19 are invited to send an email to both:

President@thewoodlandsrunningclub.org and Treasurer@thewoodlandsrunningclub.org

with a brief statement of your Covid-related circumstances and requesting a refund of membership fees already paid.

New members should use our regular enrollment procedures, then request reimbursements.
Funds will be distributed in the order of receipt until exhausted or June 30th.

This email is being sent to current and former members. Even if you are no longer a member because you have moved away or for another reason, please help us spread the word.

It is with deep gratitude that TWRC thanks Julia and Gabriel Belforti for leading our Juniors Running Program for four years.

Hello, I'm Vince Varallom the race director for "The Great American Relay" and we are looking for runners in Texas to help us on our way from Boston to California. This is a real relay, not virtual. We are running for 36 consecutive days in 379 legs. The route has 22 legs in Texas from October 8th to 10th. Runners can register on the website, www.greatamericanrelay.com. We are raising money for the American Association for Cancer Research too. We would love to have
you join us.
