Awards are determined by gun times per USATF guidelines for all sanctioned events, and our timing company (3 Way Racing) insists to conform to the USATF regulations.The exception will be that gun time will be used to determine overall male and female finishers, whereas chip time will be used to determine age group winners.

A portion of the proceeds will go to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in memory of Susan B. Riherd, sister of bg26.2 Race Director Lilly Riherd, who died from MS at the age of 48.

We’ve added a new distance to our family of events for 2016. Presenting the inaugural bg6000! It’s a 6K race through downtown Bowling Green, or perhaps it’s a 5K with an bonus K at the end. No matter how you look at it, the bg6k presents a unique and fun challenge.
