Register today for the Run and Ride's unique 5K on May 10th and don't miss your only chance to run or walk on the Chisholm Trail Parkway before it opens. This once-in-a-lifetime event also requires the help of many volunteers, so please sign up and serve as a volunteer. Proceeds benefit CASA of Tarrant County and CASA of Johnson County.
Planned since the 1960′s, the long-awaited Chisholm Trail Parkway toll road connecting Tarrant and Johnson Counties, from Fort Worth to Cleburne, is nearing completion. The Run and Ride dedication event, which includes a half marathon, 5K, 1 Mile Kids Fun Run and bike ride of various lengths welcomes participation from all ages and abilities. One time and one time only will we have the opportunity to ride bikes, run, walk or do all three on the actual parkway itself. The parkway is scheduled to open to vehicles on Sunday, May 11.
Proceeds from the event benefit two well-respected non-profit organizations, CASA of Tarrant County and CASA of Johnson County, who support neglected and abused children.
