The Cowtown Fall Fit Festival

The Cowtown Fall Fit Festival

The Cowtown Marathon is a nonprofit organization that promotes health and fitness in the Fort Worth community.

“Fall” in Love with Running in Fort Worth! Step outside and enjoy the ”Fall” Season and come join The Cowtown Marathon team for a virtual series of 8 races across the city of Fort Worth.

Each race will include an optional new route to run every 2 weeks. Just walk or run all 8 of these routes and earn medals to complete a “Greetings from Fort Worth” Postcard Medal which doubles as a Medal hanger for future races in your upcoming seasons.

The Cowtown team has incorporated fun and festivities to enjoy, eat, and shop around each race route. Also, if the routes aren’t accessible, you are welcome to run the distance where you are if you are not able to run the 8 weekly routes. Using the Cowtown App, runners will be able to:

  • Live track during your virtual runs
  • Auto-finish and results posting once you’ve completed your race
  • Event update notifications and encouragement
  • Upload photos and share your virtual run experience

We want you to safely get outside and enjoy nature, friends, family, restaurants, and just have FUN! 2020 has been a different year for many of us and we just want to lighten the mood and get you FIT at the same time.

Sign up for The Cowtown Fall Fit Festival before December 31 here.

Garden Topiaries at the FWBG

Garden Topiaries at the FWBG

The Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT®) and Fort Worth Botanic Garden invites visitors to the newest exhibit “Topiaries in the Garden,” running Oct. 16, 2020 through Jun. 30, 2021.   
 
Featuring 12 plant-based animal shapes, such as elephants, giraffes, and butterflies, the displays are sure to stimulate a sense of wonderment and fascination.  
 
“Seeing the animal topiaries throughout the Garden gives visitors yet another reason to get outside and enjoy this beautiful fall weather,” said Vice President for Horticulture and Assistant Director Bob Byers.   
 
Topiary is a horticultural practice that trains plants to grow and develop into distinctive shapes. In this case,  animal-shaped frames are stuffed with sphagnum peat moss, bound in fishing line, and then planted with flowering annuals, groundcover and other plants. The process allows for depiction of not just the shape of the animal, but also the color and texture of its skin, fur or feathers. For the duration of the exhibit Garden staff and volunteers will maintain the topiaries by watering, fertilizing, pinning stray runners, and shearing.   
 
Exhibit viewing is included with the price of Garden admission. Members receive free entry. For more information, visit fwbg.org/events/topiaries.

Fort Worth Botanic Gardens is OPEN

Fort Worth Botanic Gardens is OPEN

Starting June 1, the Fort Worth Botanic Garden will reopen from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays only, with the first and last hour of the day reserved for GROW members only (8–9 a.m. and 5–6 p.m.). Starting June 13, the Garden will reopen also on weekends.

“We know that people are excited to get back outdoors and enjoy some fresh air surrounded by the beauty of the Garden,” said Bob Byers. “We’re delighted to reopen our gates.”

Tickets must be purchased in advance and online at fwbg.org to allow for contactless payment and specific entry times. To protect the health of all, guests, staff and volunteers will be screened before entry to ensure they do not have a high temperature or other COVID-19 symptoms.

The Garden Center will be closed except for ticketing and restrooms, and the Trellis Gift Shop will open on a limited capacity, allowing only four guests at a time. The Botanical Research Institute of Texas will also open with limited capacity.

Guests eager to support the Garden in its reopening may purchase memberships at fwgrow.org. Members enjoy the first and last hour of the day at the Garden with minimal crowds, receive extra Trellis Gift Shop discounts, and reciprocal admission at gardens across the United States.

BRIT and the Garden made a voluntary commitment to follow best practices in preventing the spread of COVID-19. The commitment, developed by Visit Fort Worth in partnership with the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce, Fort Worth Metropolitan Black Chamber of Commerce, Fort Worth Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the City of Fort Worth, encourages restaurants, hotels, cultural institutions and businesses of any kind to take preventive steps to help stop the spread of the disease to the best of their ability. These steps reflect guidelines set forth by Governor Greg Abbott and the City of Fort Worth Committee on Re-Opening.

“We are doing everything in our power to keep everyone safe,” Byers said. “We’ve spent the last few weeks learning everything we can about ensuring the health of our guests.”

One critical step will be to limit crowds. Admission to the Garden will be limited to 25% of normal occupancy, with just 300 individuals admitted to the Garden each hour (150 front entrance, 150 back lot entrance near I30). Admission to BRIT will also be at 25% of normal occupancy (164 maximum per day).

Paths in the Garden will be one-way only, and social distancing will be encouraged. The use of face masks is encouraged, and they may be purchased at the Trellis Gift Shop.
