The 2021 Cowtown Has been moved

from February 26th – 28th, to May 8th, 2021

The Cowtown Marathon has made the decision to move our 2021 race dates as well as adjust all race weekend activities. This change is in response to ongoing coronavirus-pandemic concerns and our commitment to the safety of all athletes, volunteers, spectators and staff. We are acting now, so runners may effectively train for their distances, and we can accommodate safety recommendations for social distancing.
The Cowtown will now take place on May 8th, 2021, shifting from the last weekend in February (26th – 28th, 2021). May 8th will include an in-person 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, and the Healthy Hig Half Marathon Relay. We have cancelled the in-person Kids 5K, Full, and Ultra Marathons, but virtual options to run are available.
If you have questions please check out our FAQ page HERE, we will be working on updating as we move closer to the race.

Gather your posse and DRIVE through the Chisholm Trail in teams of up to 20. Divide and conquer as your team moves up the trail on their way to completion. Run, walk, bike, swim, or just exercise to complete the distance. The event will start on January 1st and last through June 30th (180 Days).
