The Pearland Area Runner's Club (PARC) is a non-profit running club that originated in 2006. The group was founded with the following objectives:
Since its founding, PARC has grown to over 100 members and serves as an active voice for runners in the Pearland community. PARC hosts an annual Monster Dash 10K, 5K, and kids 1K every October. The money raised from the race is donated to the Pearland Parks and Recreation Department for the development of local trails.
PARC also hosts other events for members including weekly Saturday runs, quarterly breakfasts and socials, and social-running events such as the annual Christmas Light Run in December. For more details on upcoming PARC events, refer to the Meetup page.
