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.
