HOUSTON DESIGNATED AN OFFICIAL RRCA "RUNNER FRIENDLY COMMUNITY"
HARRA is proud to announce that the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) selected Houston as an official Runner Friendly Community in 2019. This designation is given to cities with demonstrated commitment to running based on cohesive community infrastructure, support, and governmental advocacy. The application for Runner Friendly Community status was submitted by then HARRA President, June Harris, and included documentation of our runner friendliness from various entities including Houston Parks & Recreation, the City of Houston, local running-related businesses, and - of course - Houston running clubs and runners. This designation is valid for 5 years.
You can view the video that was part of the application here. You can read more about RRCA Runner Friendly Communities here.
