Half Marathon, Two-Person Relay and 5K Run/Walk 


Some call it a Sacramento tradition, we call it legendairy. You say it’s fun, we say it’s amoosing.  Some still call it Cowtown (heck, some old-timers even remember it as the Sacramento Marathon), but we call it Urban Cow, and on October 6th, we want you to ramble out to Land Park and party in our pasture.
