The Cowtown Trailblazer Program is a comprehensive training program for those interested in group or virtual training for The 2023 Cowtown Half, Full, and Ultra Marathons. Previous race times will also be used to calculate placement into a pace group. Paces are given during the training period such as speed interval paces and easy long run pace. The Trailblazer program offers in-person group activities as well as virtual options.

No matter when you join, we can create a plan for you to run your best race. The Trailblazer program provides lots of group activities: Thursday Trackwork, Saturday long runs with pace coaches, and Tuesday Social Run. We will send detailed weekly emails and schedules, as well as have a private Facebook group page for communication. Perks include different routes each Saturday (specifically on the Cowtown racecourse), seminars on relevant topics, and a Trailblazer training shirt. You will also enjoy a hefty discount for the Cowtown race at the end of February. Everything can be done virtually if you choose our virtual training option.


"I have been an avid runner for 22 years. Even though I have trained for many marathons, half marathons, 5ks, 10ks, and 15ks, in my lifetime I learned that I still needed guidance and training in order to continue to be motivated and run efficiently to avoid injury. I was introduced to the Cowtown Trailblazers 2 years ago when they trained us virtually due to Covid. Since 2020 I have registered for this program because it’s kept me running on a schedule and injury free. The management and coaches are amazing and I continue to learn from their coaching. I will always support this program because we are so blessed to have this training program in our community!"

"This program was very beneficial for my running career.  I learned about the different types of paces and learned about proper form.  I'm amazed I was able to shave 2.5 mins off my 5k time being 6yrs later!  Most of all I met some amazing people in the group.  Everyone was so nice and welcoming from the first session. I definitely recommend this program and I appreciate everything the Cowtown Trailblazers have done for me.Thanks coaches and fellow Trailblazers. "

"I love this group! I have been part of this group since 2019. I have learned so much from being a Trailblazer. Things I thought I already knew but boy was I wrong. I learned how to control my pace when I wanted to start off fast and how important nutrition is for runners. I could go on but these are just a few. The coaches are amazing, you will never be left behind. If you are a new runner or have a couple of marathons under your belt, being a Trailblazer is the way to go!"

"Many reasons I love my Cowtown Trailblazers!! Meeting such wonderful runners who care so much, having running buddies, my energy level has improved so much, learned so much about heart rate, diet, hydration and much more. Cowtown does take care of their runners in many ways possible."

"I have nothing but praises for the Cowtown Trailblazers Training Program, and I trained in the half marathon and marathon training programs. Coaches Gary and Tamara are excellent, and when they say to trust the program, they mean it. Pace Coaches, for the long runs, are encouraging and supportive.  I have met so many running friends, and they have encouraged me through some tough training sessions. It has been great to have that gentle push to get me out of my comfort zone. Since I have been through these training programs, I have achieved new PRs with my 5k, 10k, half marathon and full marathon.  My goal was to run a sub - 2hr half, and I achieved 1 hour and 53 minutes, from 2 hours and 2 minutes. My first marathon was 5 hours and 10 minutes, and after my training, I achieved 4 hours and 35 minutes. Thanks Cowtown Trailblazers!"

"My running truly took off when I joined a running community such as Cowtown. I've always loved running and had a passion for it, but it wasn't until a buddy who was already involved invited me to run a marathon and how a group would be of great help to me. Well, 6 yrs. later I am now not only still with this wonderful group, but my running has improved immensely to PR'ing my marathon time by a total time of 45 minutes. The best part of all though is the wonderful forever friends I have made through this group. I can't wait to see and make many more memories with our wonderful staff and amazing coaches."
