Distance running, Running, Half marathon


Our club is relatively small, approximately 600 members, but very active. The club was formed in 1972 and has continued to sponsor monthly races which offer low entry fees and divisional awards. We sponsor 13 club races held annually. One of these is the 4th of July “Firecracker Run” in Brownfield, Texas, which originated in 1970 and has the distinction of being the longest standing continual road race in the state of Texas. Two other monthly races have been held at the same location and month every year since 1973 – The Horseshoe Bend Canyon Runs in May and The Buffalo Wallow Half-Marathon in November.


The club also owns 3 larger community road races. These races feature t-shirts and a slightly higher entry fee than our regular monthly events. In April, the Run for the Arts features over 300 participants in an open 15K, 2mile and 1Mile Kids race. Also in the fall, the Red Raider Road Race 5K and 10K is held, usually coinciding with Texas Tech University’s Homecoming(Schedule permitting). This race attracts around 600 runners from around the state and nation. This race benefits the Red Raider Road Race Scholarship Fund. At Thanksgiving we sponsor the WTRC Turkey Trot 12K and 2 Mile races, which attract around 750 runners. These are just a few of the WTRC sponsored events that make our active club a GREAT CLUB JOIN!!
