Cowtown Celebrates 40 Years




The 40th annual nonprofit Cowtown Expo, the largest multi-event race event in North Texas, will be held from February 23 through 25 with the expo at the Will Rogers Memorial Center Amon G. Carter Jr. Exhibits Hall. Races will be run on February 24 and 25, including Kid’s 5K and Adults 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, Marathon, and Ultra Marathon.

The entire family can participate as runners, volunteers or spectators, cheering along the route. Ambitious runners can take on The Cowtown Challenge and run a race both days, earning three medals and a special gift.
