Participants will be greeted at the finish with cool towels and refreshments. Our sponsor village will be packed with goodies including live music, food and beer.  Participants will have the opportunity to stroll through the Farmers Market at the conclusion of the race. This year's race benefits the North Texas Cat Rescue.  Bring your friends and family along for the fun.
