Our 38 week primary training season starts in early June and runs through late 
February 2019.  Learn the sport of running or train for any race distance from the 5K to marathon distance.  Like our Spring season, the Prime season offers a Tuesday evening group run and a Saturday morning fully fluid-supported long run to build endurance.

Race training schedules are provided for all runners that start you at your current fitness level and safely build up in mileage as you approach your race day distance.  Train for our hometown Houston Half Marathon or Marathon or pick a race anywhere in the world and we will get you ready to run it well right here in Houston. Every year the entire team ends up training for over 30 various races in the United States and overseas.  Some members just run with the group to improve their running and stay in shape.  For more info on our Prime season, program benefits and cost, check out the links below.
