Our racing mission continues to be to produce affordable, hedonistically fun & athletically competitive races, that are technically sound (correctly-measured courses with minimum turns and visible distance – mile or Km – markers), that also benefit some charity(-ies) with a populist & gender parity focus – for the average runner/walker (including the novices) and also for the seasoned, serious racer.****

The Juneteenth Organization, in all 50 states, Celebrates this restoration of human rights and dignity; and Informs on the servitude and suffering which the Emancipation Proclamation sought to end. The 2014 Juneteenth Freedom Fest 5K / 1 Mile Run/Walk will be held at Cobb Park in Fort Worth on June 14, 2014. This will be part of the 2014 Fort Worth and Tarrant County Juneteenth Celebration…. ****
