Southlake Running Company

The Southlake Running Company was founded in 2015 by Richard Chavez to support and grow the running community in North Texas. Our mission is to feature high quality competitions, and foster talent, young and old, in the DFW Metroplex. The Southlake Running Company manages events such as the Southlake Invitational, Texas Distance Festival, and the North Texas 1600 to bring competitive distance running to the forefront. We also organize camps such as a Youth Running, Run Across Texas, and Lakeshore Camps for runners from Elementary to High School. 

In 2017, Jordan Chavez became Co-Owner of the Southlake Running Company. Together Rick and Jordan focus on creating and managing high quality events in the North Texas region. The goal of the Southlake Running Company is to continue to maintain high quality races and camps, and to continue to create new, exciting and competitive events for runners in Texas and beyond.
