Weather Policy

Race officials may cancel, delay or change the event in case of extreme weather or other conditions that may affect the safety and health of the participants. In the event of cancellation, refunds will not be issued.

Timing

We utilize the ChronoTrack “B tag” system for race timing.  The “B-tag” will be affixed to the back of the race bib. Do not peel off the “B-tag”.  No additional steps are needed prior to the start of your specific race.

Make sure the race bib is attached to the front of your body and is placed on the layer of apparel that will be worn throughout the race. Do not fold or wrinkle your bib prior to attaching it, and make sure it is not covered by a race belt, water bottle, etc.

Walkers

We are asked all the time if walkers are welcome and we happily say yes! We just ask that everyone maintain a 16-minute mile pace. If you are unable to maintain that pace, that’s ok, we will ask you to move to the sidewalk and finish the race obeying the traffic laws as we will re-open the roads.

Amenities

All 5K participants receive a quarter zip tech-shirt, a collectible cowbell, top-quality finisher’s medal, cowbell car sticker (you will want to display), a virtual goody bag, water stations, baggage check, course entertainment, post-race food & beverage, medical stations, massage therapy, and of course, spirited neighborhood crowds and volunteers cheering with cowbells. You’d think it’s your birthday with all you get!  And local favorites, Crossfire will be performing on the main stage in Runners’ Village. (*Please note MO’ Cowbell is not responsible for any materials left along the course or in runner baggage check.)
