Cowtown Marathon set to break records

With the big day still a week away, the Cowtown has broken its participation record. More than 14,000 people have signed up for one of the races. This year, the Health Science Center is the title sponsor of the event, and we want as many faculty, staff and students as possible to be involved. There are still opportunities to volunteer, attend the Health Fair or the Health and Fitness Expo, or run one of the races.

The Cowtown is one of the largest multi-event road races in the country, and it takes hundreds of volunteers to make it all run smoothly. You can help out with everything from registration to cheering runners to cleaning up after the race. To register, visit the Cowtown volunteer Web page or contact Tera Galindo at ext. 2033.

Attend the Health Fair
The mission of the Cowtown is to promote health and fitness in our community. This year, UNT Health is sponsoring a free Health Fair on Friday, Feb. 27, from 4 to 8 pm in the medical tent at 4th and Main Streets at Sundance Square. Get free health screenings and information from UNT Health faculty and staff and UNTHSC students. Non-medical volunteers are needed to help with the fair.  Contact Randy Sachs, clinical marketing director, at ext. 0343 to volunteer. The Health Fair is open to the public.

Attend the Expo
The Cowtown Health and Fitness Expo is Friday, Feb. 27, from 11:30 am to 8 pm and Saturday, Feb. 28, from 6 am to 2:30 pm at 4th and Main Streets at Sundance Square.
