Welcome to Committee in the City, the Houston Marathon Committee’s official blog created to give you an inside look at what it takes to pull off the city’s largest single-day sporting event and highlight the people who work hard to make it all possible.

Our staff and volunteer committee are active members of the Houston community who work, play, run and volunteer in this great city. We want to stay connected with you – the Houston community and runners from around the globe – not just during one weekend out of the year, but year-round.

Check back often to read staff and committee member profiles, get the latest news about upcoming events, enter contests to win prizes and much more!

We’re excited to have you join us for the ride as we prepare for our 40th anniversary in 2012!
