Pearland Area Runner’s Club (PARC)
Frequently Asked Questions
Thank you for your interest in PARC. I hope this information helps you understand what PARC is about and we hope to see you soon.
Is PARC a training Program? Do you offer marathon or half marathon training programs?
PARC does not offer training programs but serves as a compliment to area training programs. Many of our members are also members of other local training programs. Members do, however, network with each other and increase their knowledge of training, hydration, equipment and running resources. PARC frequently hosts informational speakers such as physical therapists, dieticians, etc. so that members can learn about the latest trends in training, injury prevention and nutrition. If you are interested in a local training program, Pearland has the following resources:

What is PARC?
We are a non profit, social running club. Our goal is to bring together people who share the joy of running and to give back to the community. PARC members also volunteer at area races.
We host Saturday morning runs at 6am. The locations alternate between Independence Park and Silvercrest elementary. We also host two socials each month (a happy hour and a breakfast). Our "signature" event is the Monster Dash race (10K, 5K and kids 1K) held in October. The money we raise at this event is donated to the Pearland Parks and Recreation Dept for the development of trails.
How do I join PARC?
Joining PARC is easy. Membership is $25 per year and you can join via active.com. Each member receives a T-shirt and a membership card (good for a 10% discount at certain stores). You are more than welcome to join us for a Saturday morning run (or other event) and see what our group is all about before joining the group.
Do you have members that run my same pace?
Yes, PARC has runners of all abilities and pace groups. Joining the club is a great way to meet others within your pace range.
How do the Saturday morning runs work? Does everyone run together?
Runs alternate between Independence Park (parking lot by the pool) and Silvercrest Elementary (3003 Southwyck Pkwy). Once everyone arrives, people announce their mileage and estimated pace for that day. Members break off into groups based on that information.
