Candlelighters Run, 2009.

My favorite 5k run in Fort Worth is the Candlelighter's Run & Walk. Here's why:

1. The "nightrun" itself is different and enjoyable.
2. Great food and refreshments. Not every 5k provides as much.
3. Music and festive atmosphere after the race.
4. Downtown Fort Worth as the start and finish points.

Put all of these together and everyone gets a very enjoyable event. More importantly, the Candlelighter's Run & Walk supports an agency that works with children cancer patients and their families. There are 120 cases of childhood cancer each year in Tarrant County and the Childhood Cancer Foundation of Fort Worth has been assisting the patients and their families since 1992.

Following is a summary of event details, and, by the way, I will be there, running in slow motion.
  • Cost: $20
  • Date: October 10, 2009
  • Time: 5k Run start time is 8:30 p.m.
  • Event begins at 6 pm.
  • Start location: 8th St and Main St., Fort Worth, Texas.

I like this concept. You'll be good and hungry after a 5k.
