About The San Marcos Runners Club
The San Marcos Runners Club (SMRC) promotes
running, fitness and healthy lifestyles in San
Marcos and Central Texas, providing information,
encouragement and training resources for people
of all ages and abilities who are interested in
running or fitness in general. Another of the
Club’s goals is to stimulate an interest in fitness
in children in our community, which is plagued by
obesity and other decidedly unhealthy lifestyles.
The SMRC also organizes and manages races for local charitable and service organizations in their
fundraising efforts, providing advice and guidance in the race planning as well as management and
equipment on race day. As a member of the SMRC, you will also have the opportunity to serve your community and to support organizations like those mentioned above by volunteering your time and experience at some of these races.
