The San Marcos Runners Club (SMRC) is a group of local area runners of various levels of ability and experience. Some of our members qualify for and run in the Boston Marathon each year, while others enjoy running their miles at a 12-minute pace. We enjoy going out for training runs at our respective paces and then getting together to socialize. We also enjoy competing in races and, if we’re not running, supporting our fellow members as they compete.

It’s part of our mission to promote running, fitness and healthy lifestyles in San Marcos and Central Texas, and to provide information, encouragement and training resources for people of all ages and abilities who are interested in running or fitness in general.
The SMRC also accomplishes this mission by organizing and managing races for local charitable and service organizations in their fundraising efforts. We provide a great deal of labor and expertise to these groups, but we neither request nor receive any compensation for our services. In recent years, the SMRC has assisted with races to benefit the following local organizations:

San Marcos Manufacturers Association - Gear Up 10-Mile Run
Beta Sigma Phi - Cinco de Mayo 5K & Kidz Run
Kiwanis Club of San Marcos -
Moe’s Better Half Marathon
First United Methodist Church -
Faith Run 5K
Pet Prevent A Litter of Central Texas -
Pet Fest 5K
San Marcos Professional Fire Fighters Association -
Pink Heals 5K
San Marcos Bluebonnet Lions Club -
Thankful Turkey 5K

We are also involved in one way or another - mostly by providing volunteers or specific services - in just about every race that occurs in the San Marcos area.
The SMRC - which has actually existed for many years - was reorganized in February, 2001, after being inactive for several years. The reorganization occurred primarily because of the efforts of Dr. Moe Johnson, who is a fixture in the San Marcos running community. Moe was a founding member of the original club, and felt that there was a large enough group of runners in the area to justify re-starting the club’s meetings and activities. So, after some organizational meetings, we decided to “take a run” at having a runners’ club in San Marcos again.
