Join in the first official race on the newly USATF-certified 5K course at River Legacy Parks!

Our racing mission continues to be to produce affordable, hedonistically fun & athletically competitive races, that are technically sound (correctly-measured courses with minimum turns and visible distance – mile or Km – markers),  that also benefit some charity(-ies) with a populist & gender parity focus – for the average runner/walker (including the novices) and also for the seasoned, serious racer****.

For many of us, It’s always exciting to begin a new something with a run or a walk. And New Year’s Day begins a new year. So, of course, it would be nice to do a race on that day. But not just any race. If you want to race for fun and competition and camaraderie and charity – helping out many of our needy brothers and sisters – all in the same race, then we have the race for you!  And so we bring you A New Year Renewal Race III 5K/1M. It will take place at beautiful River Legacy Parks in Arlington, TX on January 1, 2014. The 5K will be on a newly USATF-certified course! . ****


You get to sleep in a little bit. Because the race won’t start until 9:30 AM for the 1 mile and 10:00 AM for the 5K.


Over the years we’ve engaged a number of themes with these races. Peace  -- in a world with unending warring and rampant killing – is critical for if we succeed in obliterating ourselves, then there will be no tomorrow. And nothing else will matter. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,  put it, “wars are poor chisels for carving out peaceful tomorrows…"  Gender equality & parity is another theme in a world where women and girls continue to be savaged, abused, subjugated, marginalized, disrespected – at will.  It’s disgracefully ugly!  There also is Hunger. Every year, hunger claims the lives of millions – over eight million -- of men, women and children across the globe. Even here at home, there is widespread hunger where, every day, millions don’t have enough – or anything at all – to eat. Criminal, I’d say!  A New Year Renewal Race III – albeit in a very small way -- will try to address hunger…..****

Net proceeds from the race will benefit Community Food Bank --serving needy families in Fort Worth and Tarrant County.****
