Coming October 2, 2016. Get a moooove on! It’s almost time for the Urban Cow Half Marathon, Two-Person Relay and 5k Run/Walk. Held in California’s capital city of Sacramento, once considered simply a “Cow Town” for city slickers traveling from San Francisco to Lake Tahoe, this year marks the 12th anniversary of this popular event. The course is a fast, flat, scenic loop past grassy meadows, picturesque neighborhoods, the California State Capitol Building, and the Sacramento River. Finish line celebrations include live music, a beer garden, delicious food, and custom cowbell finisher awards.
