Pre-Race Festival & Half Calf Kids’ Races

Saturday, October 5, 2019 • William Land Park

To celebrate our 15th anniversary, we’re throwing a two-day party! The Urban Cow Pre-Race Festival takes place at William Land Park on Saturday, October 5. Let the kiddos run in the Half Calf Kids’ Races (registration opens at 8:00 a.m. and races begin at 9:00 a.m.), then pick up your bib and shirt starting at 9am. Visit the vendor booths, and stick around for our Q&A panel with the Race Director and Pace Team leaders at 2:00 p.m. You won't want to miss the latest in cowture fashion when our moo-dels walk the runway at 11:30 a.m. Then it's home again, home again to lay out your flat runner and get a good night's sleep before your race on Sunday, October 6!
