The Urban Cow Half Marathon benefits and promotes the sport we love. The following local, non-profit youth running programs and high school x-country teams receive much needed funding from our event.  Many of these groups will be supporting you at the aid stations and on the course.  Be sure to give them a shout out when you go by!
