Club Bio

The Al Lawrence Running Club, USA (ALRC) was established in 1987 by a group of interested runners who were being coached by Al Lawrence. The club motto is “Non Laurus Luctatio”, which translates to “not the prize but the struggle.” Our purpose is to foster competitive and recreational running among our club members and within our community. We welcome anyone who enjoys the camaraderie of competition at any level. Al coached many Houston area runners ranging from Olympians to back-of-the-packers. Today the club still has a number of members who receive professional independent coaching from Connie Lawrence, but that certainly is not a requirement for membership in the Al Lawrence Running Club. The ALRC is very active in the running community, organizing and volunteering at races as well as running in them. We are also active members of HARRA (Houston Area Road Runners Association). Club members are encouraged to join HARRA and compete on the ALRC teams in the HARRA road races and relays to earn points in the club competition as well as individual Runner of the Season standings.
