Want to run or cycle the Chisholm Trail Parkway?

Here's your chance. A concert and community runs and bike rides will mark the May opening of the 28-mile toll roaf, the planning committee said Friday.

"Community leaders throughout the corridor are working together to plan this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," Adelaide Leavens, chair of events for the opening, said.

May 9, the city of Cleburne and Cleburne Chamber of Commerce are planning a concert at the Buddy Stewart Park on U.S. 67 at the end of the Chisholm Trail parkway.

"Other activities are being planned for the late afternoon/early evening celebration," the planning committee said in a release. "A well-known musical group will perform. Details will be announced soon."

May 10, the planning committee will hold a a half-marathon starting at FM 1902 in Johnson County and ending at Edwards Ranch Road in the new Clearfork development, with participants being bused from a staging area to the start line.

The same day, there will also be a 5K roundtrip run from Edwards Ranch Road over the Trinity River, and a one-mile kids fun run starting and ending at Edwards Ranch Road.

Also May 10, there will be bike rides of 12, 30 and 50 miles beginning and ending at Edwards Ranch Road, the committee said.

The run and bike events will include post-race activities in Clearfork.

The events organizers did not release immediate information about fees or sponsorship, but they said proceeds from the events will benefit CASA of Tarrant County and CASA of Johnson County, nonprofits that provide advocates for abused and neglected children and ones under court protection in North Texas.

The events steering committee includes Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley, Johnson County Judge Roger Harmon, Tarrant County Commissioner Roy C. Brooks, Burleson Mayor Ken Shetter, Cleburne Mayor Scott Cain, Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price, Joshua Mayor Joe Hollarn, Fort Worth City Councilman Jungus Jordan, North Texas Tollway Association Chairman Kenneth Bar, TxDOT district engineer Brian Barth, North Central Texas Council of Governments transportation director Michael Morris, and Leavens.
