A family-friendly, non-profit event organized by the Houston Area Road Runners Association (HARRA), an all-volunteer 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to promote running and fitness. 100% of the proceeds are donated to the Houston Parks Department.
The Houston Striders is a non-profit HARRA-affiliated running club that has been running Houston since 1985. As a club, the Striders seek to fulfill our mission of supporting the fitness and training goals of runners and walkers at all levels, while providing resources, education, networking and fellowship through a variety of program, events and volunteer opportunities. We are the founders and organizers of the Houston Half Marathon & 10K, presented every year in October as part of the Houston Marathon Warm-up Series of races. Through the years, over $500,000 in race proceeds have been donated to a number of deserving charities and organizations, including HARRA and the Bayou City Classic.
