Foster Park and Overton Park Walks – Fort Worth, TX – 09/26/15

foster_park05

The Tarrant County Walkers are hosting a 5k walk and a 10k walk in these urban parks.  Originally part of the Edwards Ranch, founded in 1846, the parks were formed when the Edwards family donated lands for Trinity Park, then later Overton Park, and the surrounding neighbor-hoods. Foster Park runs along a cat-tailed filled creek. Several species of birds and other wildlife can be seen along the trails.

To participate in either of these walking events you are required to register at the start.  Registration is anytime from 8 am – until 11 am.  Registration costs a mere $3.00. You will carry a start card with you and at the checkpoints your card will be marked.

This is not a speed competition. You are encouraged to bring along your children and walk/talk and spend some time together enjoying the great outdoors.

When you finish (anytime before 2 pm) you turn in your start card. If you are an official Volkssporter you will have an Event and/or Distance Record Book. When you turn in your start card you will receive a stamp in your record books.

If you do not as yet have an AVA record book, they will be for sale at the start/finish. Just ask for a new walker’s packet. The packet is $5.00 but it contains three coupons for free registration ($9.00 value) as well as both an Event and a Distance book.

Start Point: Tom Thumb Grocery Store, 3000 South Hulen St., Fort Worth, TX 76109.

Hope to see you there!
