You may run alone, but on National Running Day, we celebrate together!
On June 1, thousands of runners from around the nation shared their passion for a lifestyle that is one of the best and simplest ways to stay fit—and so much more.
The HMC kicked off National Running day bright and early. Local runners joined Executive Director Wade Morehead and Managing Director Steven Karpas at Houston’s Memorial Park for an early morning run at 6:30 a.m.
Wednesday also marked the launch of general race registration for the 2012 Chevron Houston Marathon and Aramco Houston Half Marathon. More than 5,000 runners registered on opening day.
The HMC closed out National Running Day with a runner appreciation celebration at Sports Authority. About 200 Houstonians gathered to mix, mingle and enter for a chance to win a guaranteed 2012 race entry courtesy of our partners Sports Authority and Under Armour.
Because of the great turnout, Sports Authority and Under Armour donated an additional five race entries to be drawn! Congratulations to all 15 winners!
