Description

Half Marathon and 5K school fundraiser in rural Bucyrus, Kansas! Just 30 minutes south of Kansas City. Fully supported course, fantastic volunteers and post race festivities distinguish this event from all others! Top Rated Race in America ~ RaceRaves.com

“You race it once, I guarantee you'll come back” says one finisher of this hidden gem of the heartland. RWTC starts and finishes at Holy Rosary Wea School (for which the event is an annual fundraiser) with a rural course featuring miles of bucolic countryside. Along the way, “super friendly” volunteers help you conquer the rolling hills with the help of — you guessed it, more cowbell. But as gratifying as the scenery is, the organizers may save the best for last with a post-race “smorgasbord” that includes allergy-friendly options. And as one reviewer notes, “How many races can you attend where you can actually kiss a calf after?” For an udderly irresistible half marathon with huge comMOOOnity support, RWTC may be the most fun you’ll “heifer” have on race day.
