Cowboy Up Walk/Run underway Sunday

Area runners were out early Sunday morning to take place in the inaugural Cowboy Up 5K/Walk event. Proceeds from the event organized by Abilene resident Steve Cathey go to help off set the cost of the construction at Abilene’s Cowboy football and track stadium. Cathey welcomed 63 runners and more than 35 walkers to the opening event. Postponed from Saturday due to lightning, Megan Lovett of Chapman led the walkers on a two-mile route as she finished at 22:39 while Eddie Grier of Manhattan sprinted across the finish line of the 5K course with a first place time of 17:59.
