The Cowtown Marathon is celebrating its 40th anniversary February 23 - 25. The races will go on rain or shine but could be delayed due to lightning.
Last year, 23,349 people either ran or walked in the Cowtown. Organizers expect a few thousand more this year.
There’ll be great fun for everyone as The Cowtown commemorates its 1970s origin with disco balls, short running shorts, peace signs, and many other groovy vibes.
