Keep calm and gallop on



Attention all runners and walkers .. it is time to sign up for the Cowboy Gallop 5K Run and 2 Mile Fun Walk!

For $12 ($15 if you wait until Oct. 26) you can get a really cool t-shirt designed by our cool webmaster and design chick Jessica M. Machado. If that isn’t enough to sway you, then how about breakfast tacos and beverages? If you are lucky to win in your category, you could walk away with a really neat medal and quite possibly the overall winner’s plaque in the men’s or women’s division.

The Gallop will take place at the Pleasanton Riverpark, before the parade. These are the only two events that have not moved to the Atascosa County Showbarn grounds. Registration is from 7-7:45 a.m. with the race beginning at 8 a.m.

Forms are available at the office or bring in the one on page 2C. You can even download it here.

See you there!
