The Race to Beat MS

Join us for the 6th running bg26.2 & half marathon in a race against Multiple Sclerosis. The Boston Marathon qualifying USATF certified course (13.1 mile loop) starts at the Bowling Green Ball Park and runs through historic downtown Bowling Green, Kentucky and the beautiful WKU campus. (Marathoners will run the Boston Marathon qualifying course twice.) Runners will finish at the Bowling Green Ball Park. Registered participants will receive a goodie bag and tech shirt. Finishers will receive a finisher’s medal and finish area refreshments.

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 bg6000 presents a unique and fun challenge.
