Paul van Helmond

Paul served on the board as vice-president in 2021 and as Director since 2019. Paul has been running on and off since he was a youngster. Paul ran (recreational) track in his native The Netherlands in college and then picked running back up when he was in Texas in the late ’90s. Paul ran his first marathon in 1997 with Houston FIT. Since moving back to Texas in 2016, Paul joined KARC, and he has run several half-marathons and one full marathon since. Paul loves the running community, its supportive character, and its no-whining, mind-over-matter attitude. Paul works as a Project Development Lead at Air Products and hopes that that keeps him afloat while his 3 kids are in college.
