We hope you are well and staying safe and healthy in these challenging times. It's been quite a roller coaster these past few months with the current public health crisis of coronavirus/COVID-19.
Due to the current state of Covid19 in Houston and Harris County, we will start our season virtually in mid-August. We will not meet to run in person, in groups, for several weeks after we start our season. We hope to be able to meet in person by late September, but it will depend on current guidance on safe and healthy group gatherings. We are following any guidance from the City, County and Road Runner Clubs of America (RRCA) and are putting measures in place that will allow us to run together safely and comfortably. You can see what are current plans are on our Covid 19 Safety page on this website.
There will be changes in the way we meet, run, gather and generally carry out our season. We will adapt our season to follow a list of guidelines to keep everyone safe. Our calendar of events will reflect that. A lot of the calendar is tentative now, but if we can, we will hold the following event. All event notices will be sent via email to registered members.
