The 34th edition of Cowtown, one of the region’s largest and most popular multi-race events, will be held February 24 to 26. More than 25,000 runners are expected to participate in two 5K events, 10K, half-marathon, marathon and ultra-marathon contests. Races start and finish in the Will Rogers Memorial Center, in the heart of the Fort Worth cultural district. The Cowtown Kids 5K recently won national honors at the 2012 Running USA Industry conference.
A free, two-day Health and Fitness Expo is slated for February 24, with more than 140 vendors from across the nation showcasing their products and services. Seminars on the topics of courses, training and sports injuries will be offered both days.
The event benefits Cowtown Children Activities for Life and Fitness, the American Cancer Society, the Red White and Blue Society and the Lukemia and Lymphoma Society. Cowtown staff and volunteers work year-round to help bring awareness and the importance of good nutrition and maintaining a healthy lifestyle to local children and families.
