I ran my very first half marathon at Cowtown last year on a dare, and I absolutely loved it. I loved it so much that I ran four more half marathons and a marathon over the next year in stunning locations, including Whitefish, Montana; San Diego, California; and at our ‘Fort Worth competitor,’ the Dallas Marathon. I can honestly say, nothing beats Cowtown. There is nothing like running through the stockyards and nothing can make me cry faster than the miliary photos through the dreaded mile 9 hill. The American flags at the top of that hill, held by a crowd of loud, cheering spectators, ensure you never stop running.

We prepaid for VIP parking, and it was a breeze. I participated in the Cowtown Challenge, and the extra medal and shirt were worth every bit of the extra effort. I wanted to run the Ultra this year, but an unplanned surgery derailed my training. I’m crossing my fingers that I’ll be able to check off the Ultra next year. Well done, Cowtown! See you next year, friends.

I ran this race in 2023. Unfortunately, the fires in Canada added a layer of smoke. Making things worse, the weather was HOT, it was absolutely not 76 as shown above. It was 84 degrees when I finished. There was no shade on the second half of the marathon and that’s where the hills are. I powered through, taking almost 6 hours but I almost DNF’d. BUT, Whitefish is beautiful and we had a wonderful time walking around the city before and after the race. It almost made it worth it. ; )

I ran the Cowtown half marathon for the first time in 2023. Oh. My. Heaven’s. This was the best race ever. The production was amazing, very well organized. Parking wasn’t bad if you got there early. Running through the Stockyards was AWESOME. So much pretty scenery, Fort Worth’s best views. Already registered for the 2024 marathon, may even do the Ultra!
