Be prepared to walk a lot if you drive your car and use hotel parking, very little parking to be had and what there is $$ overall a great destination race lots of bands, beads and cheering folks, if you run both days you’ll get more swag, but 10 k is on Sunday so you will have to run the 5k on Saturday

The mayor has ran the half 29 times and most of the city council runs it, great swag, finishers medals are a 3 year series so you’ll want to run next year to get the final piece of the series and the plate to mount it on.

Arrive early parking can be difficult and plan on a long walk, train for hills there are 3 hills on the course.
I ran the cowtown challenge and the swag I received was well worth the money, also at expo for the first time they had a expo presale for next year in honor of its 40 year anniversary, they didn’t announce but after finding out was well worth the wait to sign up for next years races

Sign up for this race! For your entry fee you get more bling than any race I’ve been in and the free stuff the vendors gave out before and after the race is crazy good, also make sure you get on some hill training before this race because the last two thirds of this course are quite hilly

If you want more
Swag run both Saturday and Sunday if your racing arrive early to find a parking spot love that cowtown offers an early Sunday morning church service also generous time limits for the slower runners didn’t expect to get a finishers windbreaker
