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 these 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 nothing else will matter. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., 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, disrespected – 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. 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! A 2016 Charity 2 Mile @ $15 / 1K Run/Walk — albeit in a very small way — will try to address hunger…..
Net proceeds from the race will benefit Community Food Bank —serving needy families in Fort Worth and Tarrant County.
