Almost 2,400 people ran in the 13.1 mile race and another 400 in the 5k.

Close to 3,000 people crowded into Frontier Park early Sunday morning for the MO' Cowbell half marathon and 5k race. 

About 2,400 people participated in the 13.1 mile race which took runners through Frenchtown, New Town and along the Mel Wetter Expressway. Another 421 people ran in the 5k race. 

A group of people cheered on the runners at Herman's Farm. Students from Duchesne High School also provided cheer with live band music for both 5k and half marathon runners.
