March has only just begun, and it’s already shaping up to be a record year for Cypress Running Club! Among a ridiculous number of personal records that were set last weekend at races in The Woodlands and Sugarland, two more members of CRC ran (side by side!) times that...Read More
While there has been excitement this past week over pre-registration opportunities for the Chevron Houston Marathon and the Aramco Half Marathon, CRC will be highlighting a number of other races this coming season. Members are by no means limited to the list below but we think it’s more fun to attend races with friends and training buddies! These are also the events we will target for organized carpools, team tent, cheering and other race support. CRC has selected events with solid race direction that have been enjoyed by CRC members in the past. Training plans are being finalized and will kick off later this summer.
The three primary race weekends offering half and full marathons include:
There are a handful of other races we will be highlighting in the fall leading up to these events.

The Chevron Houston Marathon and the Aramco Half Marathon provide a few opportunities for runners to bypass the lottery and guarantee registration! The most popular way to qualify for early registration is to turn in a fast time in another half or full marathon, or a handful of 10k races are designation as qualifiers as well. If you are among the lucky ones to meet any early registration criteria go ahead and sign up today! For more details and to register check out the official Chevron Houston Marathon website. And, if you have time to poke around, you will notice Cypress Running Club is now listed as an official training club!Read More

If you are signed up for your first triathlon, or thinking about a triathlon, or are curious to learn more about the sport of triathlon, SBR Coaches wants to help! (SBR = Swim Bike Run.) They will be conducting a beginner clinic for CRC this Saturday 4/20 after our morning runs (around 7:15am) and will talk about how to incorporate triathlon training into your schedule, walk through a transition setup, and discuss common training/racing mistakes. They are anxious to answer any questions you have and look forward to seeing folks this weekend!Read More
While it may not be the most organized race around, all the free ice cream offered afterwards certainly help Blue Bell Fun Run keep its reputation as one of the most fun and family-friendly races. Our Cypress Running Club kids will be earning their post-race treat after a 1 mile fun run, and plenty of club members will be tackling the hills of Brenham in the 5k and 10k distances. We will plan to have a CLUB PHOTO AT THE TENT AT 7:45 SHARP! We have a great tent location right near packet pick up and the finish line. Immediately after the photo we’ll escort the kiddos down to the field for the 1 Mile start at 8:00, and this also leaves plenty of time for others to cheer on the kiddos before making their way up the hill to the 5k and 10k start.Read More
Without a doubt, the first ever Cypress Running Club family picnic has no doubt become the first ANNUAL Cypress Running Club family picnic. We had absolutely perfect weather (which, I think we were due given some of the crummy race weather we’ve been dealt this season!) for families to enjoy hanging out together. We are thankful for all the volunteers who helped out, and for our club members who brought yummy food to help make the picnic such a success. The tattoo station was a hit with the kids, as were the logo frisbee giveaways, but the highlight event was the 1.5 mile kids fun run. Nearly 90 (!) kids participated, and each one was beaming as they crossed the finish line and received a CRC finisher medal.Read More
