A male athlete in his day chair pushes another male athlete in his day chair in a local 4 mile race.  Great example of team work!

Our athletes are very special people and without them Achilles Houston doesn't exist. We are here because of you!


Achilles welcomes people with any disability, of any age, and any athletic ability. We are not just a running club -- we will help you try to reach your fitness goal, whether it is to walk a 5K or complete an Ironman.


Achilles is completely free to you. What does this free membership include?


  • Weekly workout with enthusiastic volunteers

  • Training advice and help reaching goals

  • Unmatched camaraderie

  • Participation in fun local races with enthusiastic guides

  • and of course, a tee shirt


To become one of our amazing athletes, it is as simple as showing up!  Complete the membership application/wavier below and bring it to one of our Saturday workouts. If you let us know you are coming, we can look for you (and help with directions) and better plan to help you with your workout.
