“The Cowtown races took place this past weekend, February 22 and 23, in Fort Worth, Texas.
There is a 10K, adults 5K and a children’s 5K on Saturday, and on Sunday there is the half marathon, marathon and 50K.
If you run a race both days, that’s known as The Cowtown Challenge. For your efforts you earn an additional medal (and an extra technical shirt!).
I ran the 10K (PR!) and the half marathon. What’s really fun about the medals is that it’s designed as a spur on a leather (pleather?) strap and it spins! There were color designations and designations on the ribbons for the half (green), full (yellow) and ultra (orange). I also love that the ribbons say “I earned my spurs”. Too fun!”
