Houston Black Historical Landmark Challenge

This year HARRA has launched an initiative dedicated to supporting a diverse community of runners.  All Paces, All Races, Better Together embraces all runners to reflect and represent our community as a whole. We have chosen 15 black historical landmarks in Houston to honor Dr. King’s birthday.  In an effort to be more inclusive and diverse, as we are #bettertogether, we have created this landmark challenge as a way to raise awareness of these great landmarks that many of us may pass every day.  

Challenge Rules & Details can be found HERE.
