Chad Holmes, President of the Houston Striders said, “On behalf of the Houston Striders, I am excited to extend this open invitation for all to take part in our newly added expo. Unlike previous years, we’ve expanded our packet pickup experience to feature an assortment of health and fitness vendors. We also have an expo speaker series and group shakeout run in the works, so you won’t want to miss out on this opportunity! Come pick up your race bib and t-shirt, grab some supplies from Fleet Feet, and meet new friends from Houston and beyond before tackling our fast and flat course on Sunday. See you there!”

“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with the Houston Striders and the Houston Half Marathon & 10K in a big way. The addition of the Expo is a clear indication of the enormous growth the event has had over the last 10 years and it brings Fleet Feet great pride to be the title sponsor of its inaugural year.” Said Danny Braden, General Manager of Fleet Feet Houston.
