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.

The 2021 Cowtown

Has been moved from February 26th – 28th, to May 8th :

The Cowtown is optimistic that The Cowtown February event will take place as it has for the past 42 years but we do understand the uncertainty of the times. If The Cowtown is unable to take place runners will have the option to run the event virtually, defer your registration to the 2022 or 2023 year, or if we are able to reschedule the event in a later month, run The Cowtown at that time. We will continually send updates to our runners as our planning continues for The Cowtown scheduled for February 27 & February 28, 2021.

The Cowtown Cool Down The Cowtown ‘Blast from the Past’

Summer is heating up, so it is time to cool down with The Cowtown! Take part in a 5K, 10K, Half, or Full and earn a hydration vest OR belt for carrying your hydration on longer runs. There are many permanent realities for race events as a result of COVID-19. At this time, water fountains are no longer accessible in parks and on trails. Once races begin to take place in person again, water stops will forever be changed. Runners will most likely need to carry their own hydration.

Cowtown Cool Down

With many running events having to cancel, postpone, or become virtual The Cowtown thought it was the perfect time to earn those medals runners missed out on previously. The Cowtown is known for its medal series. There are athletes, however, that may have joined us in the middle of a series and they are missing part of their medal collection. Now is the time to fix that!

The 2021 Cowtown has been moved from the original February date. The race will now be held on Saturday, May 8th, 2021 instead of February 26th – 28th. This change is in response to ongoing coronavirus-pandemic concerns and our commitment to the safety of all athletes, volunteers, spectators and staff.

In addition, there will no longer be a in-person Kids 5K, Full, or Ultra Marathon, and the Healthy Hif Relay has been moved from the Full to the Half. There will be virtual options for the dropped races and you may still defer any of your 2021 registrations to 2022 or 2023.

We are acting now, so runners may effectively train for their distances, and we can accommodate safety recommendations for social distancing.
