Second Annual Fall Festival Half Marathon and 5K
On October 2nd, Clark Gardens hosts our Second Annual Fall Festival Half Marathon and 5K. The half marathon race starts in Clark Gardens and continues on to the Rails to Trails. The runners enjoy beautiful country roads, rolling hills and a trip through the Vietnam War Museum. A favorite among runners is the aid station at the Garner Store and Cafe. The 5K also starts at Clark Gardens continuing on the Rails to Trails and finishes with a dash through the Park. The award ceremony features breakfast burritos and music by the Weatherford based band, Elixir. Read more about the October 2nd runner events and access registration forms.
After the race, runners are invited to enjoy the gardens and the fall festival activities which include pumpkin painting, pumpkin golf, gardening speakers and much more. It's a great day to enjoy the fall season in north central Texas.
