A primary mission of HARRA is to advocate for, encourage, and help finance development for runners. A focus is park and trail development across the region so that runners have accessible, safe and smooth pathways to run. We encourage all runners to involve themselves in community development so that the needs of the running community are heard.
To further promote our mission, HARRA has launched an initiative dedicated to supporting a diverse community of runners. HARRA embraces all runners to reflect and represent our community as a whole. Running is a sport open to anyone and we are committed to making the sport accessible and inclusive for all.
Please also consider making a tax deductible donation to the Houston Area Road Runners Association. All donations received in 2014 will be earmarked for community development in support of running such as parks, trails and associated infrastructure as the Memorial Park Runners Deck.
