Cowtown Marathon issues heat advisory for this weekend in Fort Worth

Warm temperatures in the forecast won’t keep thousands of runners from heading to Fort Worth this weekend for the Cowtown Marathon. But organizers have issued a heat advisory warning for those participating.

People who are participating in the races or supporting runners are reminded to take breaks and stay hydrated before, during, and after the races.

Organizers have also set up hydration stations every mile and a half for runners. In addition to water and Gatorade, misters and iced towels will be available to the runners at the hydration stations.
