    Wichita Falls, Texas, a cornucopia of health in the Lone Star State, has an abundance of healthy options for its citizens and visitors alike. We have great events such as the biggest annual bike race of its kind in the United States, the Hotter’N Hell Hundred, a 100-mile race in 100 degree temperatures that draws 12,000 to 14,000 riders; we have one of toughest smoking ordinances in the state protecting our community from the harmful effects of second hand smoke; and our Farmers Market and Community Garden help promote a healthy lifestyle by increasing the availability of fresh produce. As a community, we continue to learn and grow with the goal of being the best we can be. Wichita Falls will continue striving to be the healthiest place to live, work and play.
