One last chance to join Team HAWC and Run for A Reason


Thinking about running the Aramco Houston Half Marathon on January 17? Registration is now SOLD OUT, but we can still guarantee your entry in exchange for your support of our mission!


"Fundraising for Registration" (FFR) is part of Houston Marathon and Aramco Houston Half Marathon's Run for a Reason program, which gives runners an opportunity to fundraise for selected agencies like ours and receive guaranteed race entry.


With eight full/half marathon runners already committed, we have only ONE half marathon spot left on Team HAWC! So, slip on those sneakers, and help us make our team complete by signing up today!


To participate, download and complete a commitment form and email it to LCasey@hawc.org. Once you have been confirmed for Team HAWC, head to Run for a Reason's “Become a Fundraiser for HAWC" page to set up a personal fundraising page! There is a minimum fundraising amount to be raised by November 20, plus the registration fee (that goes to the Houston Marathon).


Another option that allows runners to guarantee race entry now by signing up in the "HERO" program. Entry includes an upfront, tax-deductible donation of at least $350 plus the cost of registration, to secure a guaranteed race entry. HERO Participants will also receive Houston Marathon website recognition, a custom back bib, tech cap and race day VIP perks. Register as a HERO now and be sure to click the button next to the Houston Area Women’s Center's listing!


The 2016 Chevron Houston Marathon and Aramco Houston Half Marathon are scheduled for Sunday, January 17, 2016.


For any additional information about how to join or support, please contact Linda Casey at LCasey@hawc.org or 713-528-6798 ext. 2233.
