History of Fort Worth also known as Panther City: (Wikipedia) In 1875, the Dallas Herald published an article by a former Fort Worth lawyer, Robert E. Cowart, who wrote that the decimation of Fort Worth's population, caused by the economic disaster and hard winter of 1873, had dealt a severe blow to the cattle industry. He further stated that the harm to the cattle industry, combined with the railroad stopping the laying of track 30 miles (48 km) outside of Fort Worth, had caused Fort Worth to become such a drowsy place that he saw a panther (cougar, mountain lion) asleep in the street by the courthouse. Although an intended insult, the name Panther City was enthusiastically embraced when in 1876 Fort Worth recovered economically. Many businesses and organizations continue to use Panther in their name. The Fort Worth police have a panther prominently set at the top of their badge. All participants will receive Custom Finishers Medals. Races shirts are Technical Fabric. (NOTE: Race shirt are only guaranteed for pre-registered participants.) ** Due to popular demand for the new Texas craft beer by Texans we will impose a 800 participant cap for this year first annual event. So PLEASE make sure you register early! **
