Update 5/7/2020: 2020 MCHM canceled

Hello MCHM runners,

It is with much sadness that the MCHM race committee has decided to cancel the 7th annual Mancos Cowboy Half Marathon, 5K and Fun Run this year. With so much uncertainty about the COVID-19 virus and the overwhelming logistics of how to organize a race with social distancing guidelines, we’ve decided to put our energy into next year’s race which will be determined at a later date. We’re all disappointed as we wanted nothing but a fun day of running in our beautiful town but we need everyone to be safe and feel that this is the best decision with the information we have currently on this pandemic.  

Options for your race registration:

  1. Donate your entry fee.  It is currently unclear the overall impact that COVID-19 will have on library funding, but it is clear we need your support now more than ever. We are adjusting to our current circumstances and working hard to provide "socially distant" services in our new situation. A donation to the library will help sustain operations and allow us to continue to offer high quality materials, programs, and services to the Mancos community.
  2. Rollover your entry to next year.  The race has yet to be determined but will most likely take place the last weekend of June in 2021.  You will be automatically registered for next year’s race.
  3. Full refund of your race entry. Please allow four to six weeks for refunds, as there is some administrative work that needs to be completed. For those that registered through RunSignup via credit card, there is no refund of the $4 processing fee."

I hope you are all enjoying these warm days and running as much as you can. Stay tuned for more information on our website and Facebook page.

Thank you all for your understanding and we hope to make 2021 our best race ever!

Kim Cox
Race Director
