Our Story


The Houston Area Road Runners Association (HARRA) is an all volunteer, nonprofit organization of runners dedicated to provide, support and advocate for the running community of Southeast Texas. We were founded in 1993 to promote running as a competitive sport and a healthful exercise in the greater Houston area.

HARRA is an affiliate member of the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) and through the RRCA, we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. All HARRA members are automatically members of the RRCA.

HARRA provides a wide variety of benefits and services to its members and to the running community, and provides the running community with a collective voice on issues that affect all runners in the Houston area.

HARRA serves as the umbrella organization for many individual running clubs in the Houston area. In this role HARRA works with the clubs to coordinate and promote club activities and competitions to the benefit of the clubs, club members, and the Houston running community.
