Cowtown offers a date for the dairy

November 20, 2013 by  

Cowtown will soon be celebrating the 36th year of hosting the largest multi-race event in Texas. The race is expected to attract an estimated 29,000 runners in Fort Worth at the February event.

Several race programs are available at the event, including a children’s 5K, a 5K and 10K for adults, and a half marathon, full marathon, and ultra-marathon. The events take place over a two-day period, but particularly ambitious participants may take the Cowtown Challenge and race both days.

An expo is a big part of the fun activities involved with the races. Many vendors will display and sell items such as food, art, crafts, gifts and other interesting merchandise. Banner printing is usually essential for vendors to have a marketable booth that communicates who they are and what they offer to those in attendance.

Volunteers are needed to assist with this large city event. There are many areas that require assistance and coordination including manning the fluid station, monitoring the course, managing the start and finish lines, handling packet distribution, and registration. Other tasks to be handled include setting up the course, handling set-up for race day, and performing clean-up after the race. Volunteer forms are available on the event website.

The Cowtown Races are scheduled for February 21-23 and will be held at the Texas Motor Speedway. Contact can be made online through the event’s website, which also provides results and images of previous years’ events to give first-timers an idea of what to expect.
