2021 Panther City Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K, & 5K

Farrington Field • 1400 Foch St Fort WorthTX  76107 Organized by Cox Racing Services

About this event

Upon further inspection and consideration, we have decided that Trinity Trails may not be clear of ice/snow and the DFW Metroplex roads may not be safe for this weekend's planned events. We understand that personal and public saftey should come first. Hence, in order to give people as much time as possible for travel plans, and to deal with the aftermath of power outages, hazardous road/driving conditions, etc., we have decided to postpone the Panther City 5K & 10K to Saturday, February 27th and the Panther City Half & Full to Sunday, February 28, 2021.

Cowart, who wrote that the decimation of Fort Worth's population, caused by the economic disaster and hard winter of 1873, had dealt a severe blow to the cattle industry. He further stated that the harm to the cattle industry, combined with the railroad stopping the laying of track 30 miles (48 km) outside of Fort Worth, had caused Fort Worth to become such a drowsy place that he saw a panther (cougar, mountain lion) asleep in the street by the courthouse. Although an intended insult, the name Panther City was enthusiastically embraced when in 1876 Fort Worth recovered economically. Many businesses and organizations continue to use Panther in their name. The Fort Worth police have a panther prominently set at the top of their badge. All participants will receive Custom Finishers Medals. Races shirts are Technical Fabric. (NOTE: Race shirt are only guaranteed for pre-registered participants.)
