HMSA is an established running club that welcomes and encourages runners of all ages and abilities. Spanning the spectrum, our membership roster includes average as well as elite runners, but we all share an energetic enthusiasm for the sport and choose to be active and involved in the Houston-area running scene.
Houston Masters: In the Beginning
In the summer of 1974 a 40-year-old master runner traveled from Houston to Eugene, Oregon to participate in the first U.S. Masters Track & Field Championships. His enthusiasm for Masters' running prompted him to form the Houston Masters Sports Association. Originally a small group of runners dedicated to promoting an active lifestyle for 40+ athletes, the club eventually grew to include athletes of all ages. And, just as with the original Masters group, today's club members are dynamic, active and innovative in the running community.
