The Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) is a national organization of running clubs in the United States and Canada. Founded in 1958, it is the oldest and largest such organization in America dedicated to distance running. The RRCA mission is to support and foster community-driven running clubs and running events in promotion of both health and competition for runners of all ages and abilities.

Houston Striders is a RRCA Running Club Member and abides by the governance requirements set by the RRCA for this status. For more information, visit the RRCA Running Club Membership page.

The RRCA National Convention is held once a year in different locations across the United States. Houston Striders hosted the 2006 RRCA Convention in Houston, and the 37 mile markers lining the hike and bike trail in Terry Hershey Park were installed as a community gift from the RRCA after the event.
