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. ***

Over the years we’ve engaged a number of themes with our races. Peace  -- in a world with unending warring and rampant killing – is critical for if we succeed in obliterating ourselves, then there will be no tomorrow. And then, of course, nothing else will matter. . As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., once put it, wars are poor chisels for carving out peaceful tomorrows…” Gender equality & parity is another theme in a world where women and girls continue to be savaged, abused, subjugated, marginalized, “dissed” – at will.  It’s disgracefully ugly!  There also is Hunger. Every year, hunger claims the lives of millions of men, women and children across the globe – millions dying from  an agonizing, painful and passive violence of hunger!. Even here at home, there is widespread hunger where, every day, millions don’t have enough – or anything at all – to eat. Criminal, I’d say!

So for this race, net proceeds will benefit a local organization, Community Food Bank of Fort Worth [www.food-bank.org], a local entity --serving needy families in Fort Worth and Tarrant County.
