Of the nearly 30 half marathons I’ve run, Running With The Cows is by far one of my favorites!

And, it’s the absolute best for post-race food. There’s really nothing like the quantity and choices of food for the runners — sandwiches, cheese, cold cuts, lasagna, pasta, cookies, brownies, chocolate milk, Gatorade, and much, much more.

You’ll enjoy the countryside views (and cows) and the rolling hills won’t be too tough.

The whole town gets behind this race and the support and organization is top-notch — including those who direct you where to park, first responders, the volunteers at the water stops and those who cheer the runners at the finish line.

Finally, the finisher medal was so unique — featuring barn doors that swing open. Amazing.

This year, despite some initial drizzling rain, I shaved about three minutes off my previous race time and ran my second fastest half marathon.

Add this to your bucket list and set your sights on your next PR!

Make this one of your must-do, bucket list half marathons. Fairly flat. Amazing scenery along Highway 101. Well organized. Good swag. Energetic field of runners. Great volunteers. Enjoyable and hospitable host city. Amazing southern California weather.

After running 25 half marathons, I got my PR on this race!

This is a must-do half marathon. Fast, flat, scenic, fall-colors course. Awesome volunteers. Lots of supportive spectators. Plenty of porta-potties all along the course. Good number of water stations. Great swag for the runners. Great start/finish in festive, hip Des Moines downtown area. Ran my second fastest half yesterday. Super happy.
