The Houston Harriers are back !
Meet the Houston Harriers AGAIN

Announcing the reorganization of the Houston Harriers Running Club as a HARRA team. The purpose of this team is to promote competitive running within the Houston running community therefore, first and foremost, training & competition will be emphasized. The Houston Harriers has been re-organized with the help of Doug Storey and the history and traditions of the club will remain as key tenets going foward. In addition to that, the Harriers are working on new events, as well as ideas for the future. One constant will be the development of the athlete, at whatever level that may be, and the training will be with input from one of the founders - Jim McLatchie ( The Great Scot !)

A new focus starting in 2018 will be the development of a Youth Program, specifically targeting the running development of those in Middle School or equivalent. The objective of the program will be to foster a love of the sport and competition and expose them to sport of cross country & track.

Over thirty years ago a group of runners - Jim McLatchie, Bob Cozens, Al Lawrence, Leonard Hilton, Simon McNamee, Donald Baxter and Danny Green decided to start a running club. The club's emphasis is on training, competition and development of runners. The Harriers have endured over the years and established a cadre of great runners. Harriers have won forty-seven (47) USA National Titles, two British Titles and three World Masters titles. Three Harriers have competed in the Olympic Games & IAAF World Track and Field Championships and two of the founding members competed in the 1956, 1960 and 1972 Olympic Games. Locally the Harriers are active in road races, track meets and cross country races and the club encourages participation in the HARRA Spring and Fall Series. While the membership includes many ex-high school and college athletes, there are also many members who came to love running later in life. One constant is development of the athlete, at whatever level that may be.

The Harriers was re-started with an inaugural meeting in June 2017, and the officers were nominated until such time as new members can be elected to the board. The current officers have been named as

Club President: Doug Storey
