The 2021 Cowtown Marathon

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.

Kids 5K

Virtual ONly (May 8th – June 30th)

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we have made the decision to move the Kids 5K to a virtual only race. This decision was made due to the large number of children and parents that normally accompany the schools for the run.

If you are part of a school team, please contact us about having a school team created or having a fun run at your school.
