REASONS TO RUN WITH US!
When you’re flying solo, it’s easy to justify skipping a workout. Accountability to another person is a big factor in adhering to a training plan.
Peer pressure can be a good thing
Research shows that the actions of others rub off on us, surround yourself with runners, and you’ll soon find enablers of the best kind.
You’ll go faster
No one wants to be the weakest link in a group setting. This is the Kohler Effect, it makes us to push beyond the limits we might set on ourselves when training alone.

You’ll also go farther
Working out with others has been found to increase the amount of time a person spends exercising, doubling the training time of those who exercised alone.
There will be Socials
Few understand what it means to be “rungry” after a workout. Our pace groups do more than just run— they also sometimes grab breakfast after a Saturday morning run.
You’ll get the inside scoop
Whether it’s advice on how to train for your first full marathon or a clever hack for preventing blisters during an ultra, you’ll be amazed at how much you can learn from your fellow runners.
Everything gets better
Those exercising in a group show significant improvements in physical fitness, mental well-being, and emotional stability, as well as a marked reduction in stress levels.

I hated running, yet I spent the majority of my childhood and a good portion of adulthood running. I can hardly remember a time when running was not part of my life growing up in Beirut, Lebanon. Running to shelters.
Hi! I just want to say thank you all for letting me run with you fine folk! Next week [October 31, 2021] will be my first race back since being diagnosed with lymphoma (blood cancer) in June 2020 and officially in remission on January 2021.
All these crazy conversations, encouragement, and countless group runs with my fellow Cougars and Falcons friends, made me achieve my goals! I just ran my first Boston Marathon with this fun group, and it made me believe that even a couch potato can be a Boston marathoner! Thank you KARC!!!
I am happier and healthier, both physically and mentally, than I think I have ever been, and I have running and my Maverick friends with KARC to thank for that. I am hoping to line up at the 2022 Chevron Houston Marathon alongside many of them and hope that they know how much I appreciate them and how they motivate me constantly.
