ABOUT THE COWTOWN: The Cowtown Marathon, the largest multi-event road race in North Texas, has a $10.4 annual economic impact in Fort Worth, Texas, and hosts one of the largest youth races in the nation. Recently voted a fan-favorite race in Texas by RaceRaves, the 42nd annual Cowtown is scheduled for Friday, February 28 through Sunday, March 1, 2020 at Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, Texas. Proceeds from The Cowtown go directly to The C.A.L.F. Program.
The Cowtown C.A.L.F. (Children’s Activities for Life and Fitness) Program:
As part of The Cowtown mission to promote a lifelong love of fitness, The C.A.L.F. Program was created in 2009 to help tens of thousands of area children lace up and cross countless finish lines. We visit approximately 400 schools across North Texas annually, training students in proper running technique and educating them about resting heart rate, the importance of hydration, proper nutrition and living an active lifestyle. Through our school grant program, we identify low-income children and fit them properly with a new pair of running shoes, as well as provide grants to make entry fees more affordable. We have made running a 5K race a reality for 42,000 children in the last 11 years.
