LGRAW is a proud member of the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA). The RRCA is dedicated to supporting the growth of local running clubs, training programs, and running events throughout the United States

Lake Grapevine Runners and Walkers (LGRAW) is a 501(c)(3) running club in Grapevine, Texas. We are a diverse group of people from all walks of life and fitness levels. From beginners to elite runners, you’ll find us on the weekends running and walking the trails around Lake Grapevine in Texas. 

The LGRAW Clubhouse is located at 2615 Dove Loop Road across from the Oak Grove Park softball fields. An historic old sign in front reads Gro, Bait, Ice and Beer from when the clubhouse was a small grocery store.

The group run/walk starts from the RAW clubhouse at 8:00 a.m. during standard time (7:00 a.m. during Daylight Saving Time). There are two courses to run/walk on the weekends. Both courses are marked every ¼ mile, and wind through the "RRCA Runner Friendly Community" of Grapevine.



Weekend run/walk

There are two courses to run/walk on the weekends. Both courses are marked every ¼ mile, and wind through parks, along the lake shore and through neighborhoods.

The main course known as the west loop has water and sports drink stationed every few miles. The first water stop is approximately 1.3 miles from the clubhouse and the second is at the 2.75 mile mark. There is also a drinking fountain on this course, at approximately the 1.2 mile. The full course is four miles out and four miles back (8 miles total).

The east loop is a six mile out and back (12 miles total) course. There are several drinking fountains available along this route.
