The 301st Fighter Wing has won the annual Cowtown Marathon military divisions (5k, 10k, and marathon relay) every year since 2001. We hope to continue the tradition again Saturday, February 23, 2008, in Fort Worth's Sundance Square. 

This event is always well done and a lot of fun (it's also a great way to shed the holiday pounds). Those who sign up as part of this team will only be required to cross the finish line ... you can move at your own pace ... we just ask that you join us as a team to help accomplish another win for the Air Force Reserve. 

Sign up for the 2008 Cowtown Marathon by filling out the form, found at www.cowtownmarathon.org in the registration link. 

There will be individual wing teams for the 5k, 10k, and marathon relay events. Marathon, Half Marathon and the Ultra Marathon start at Houston and 2nd Street at 7:30 a.m. 10K starts at Throckmorton and 3rd Street at 7:30 a.m. Adult 5K starts at Commerce and 2nd Street at 8:15 a.m. Kids 5K starts at Commerce and 2nd Street at 9 a.m. 

The races will be held on Saturday, February 23 in Downtown Fort Worth's Sundance Square. The team cost is $17 for 5k and 10k events and $60 for full marathon. All entry forms are due no later than February 3, 2008. 

The teams would like to get a photo prior to all events. Please contact Maj. Chris Clark for time and place. If you have any questions or would just like more information, call Maj. Chris Clark at 817.782.7868 or by e-mail chris.clark@carswell.af.mil.
