Winter Runnerland 5K, 10K and Half Marathon

On January 13th our chapter hosted the Winter Runnerland 5K, 10K and Half Marathon. Moms RUN This Town is having a virtual race during the month of January and our chapter ran it together as a group. We had 45 ladies sign up for the race, which included members from the Greenville, Arlington and Fort Worth Chapters. It was a very casual event, but we did have fun “swag” bags and were fortunate to have the Rockwall Running Center time our event.

Our event was a great success, but it would not have been without the support of all the wonderful ladies that ran this morning. We would also like to thank Coach Barrett and the Rockwall Running Center for providing the chip timing and refreshments and all our wonderful race sponsor who allowed us to have some great giveaways.

Christmas Light Run

On Thursday 12/13 our chapter had a Christmas light fun run in the Woodcreek neighborhood. We all got together in the evening and ran a little under 3 miles in the neighborhood while we looked at Christmas lights. We had a great turnout and had a lot of fun. It was chilli and next year we will probably plan a potluck and have some hot chocolate.

Moms RUN This Town Water Stop at Fort Worth Marathon

On Sunday November 11, members from Rockwall, Fort Worth and Keller Chapters volunteered a water stop number 9 at the Fort Worth Marathon. We were at the 11 and 15.5 mile mark for the marathon and decorated our area with balloons, signs and even decorated the trail. It was a great experience and we really enjoyed cheering all the runners that came by.
