A very special thanks to KC Running Company for managing our race and hosting the results.
Running With the Cows could not happen without the dozens of sponsors, hundreds of volunteers, and thousands of participants we have each year. Thank you to everyone who helped and participated in making the Sixth Annual Running With the Cows Half Marathon and 5k such a resounding success.
On October 3rd, 2015 we bring you...
The Muddy Udder - Cross Country Race
We will have obstacles like Hay Bales, Creek, Mud....
Who's up for a little chilly muddy fun??? We've been told that this course is "Just Mean, but a lot of fun!"
Queenie the Cow needs your help. Hundreds of photos have been lost and need to be found at the Run and Shoot Freelance Collective. We know you're there, but where? Search for yourself or your friends. You may even find a few surprises.
In the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas, which includes Queen of the Holy Rosary in Wea, there are approximately 30 seminarians. These young men are discerning God’s plan for their lives while they are being formed personally, academically, and spiritually to be priests of Jesus Christ. Their educational expenses are either covered or partially covered by the Archdiocese, but they all have other expenses for which they need to find funding.
In 2014, the organizers of Running with the Cows reached out to the priests and seminarians of the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas to invite them to run in the race for free. The Vocation Office for the Archdiocese and the race organizers agreed to make the race a fundraiser for the seminarians to help them pay their non-educational expenses.
We invite you to help support them. When you pledge to support a seminarian runner, $10 of your pledge goes to the race costs and the rest goes to the seminarian. When you pledge to support a priest runner, the amount of the pledge over $10 goes to a general fund for all of the seminarians to use for their expenses.
The seminarians and vocation team of the Archdiocese are very grateful to you for your support.
We also thank the Running with the Cows organizers for their support and hospitality. This is
a great race and a great cause.
