1 START LINE • 3 ROUTES • 1 FINISH LINE

The half marathon course aims to highlight the best of Bowling Green. The start and finish line is at the Wood County Fairgrounds. Your run will take you through eclectic downtown BG to the Slippery Elm Trail, out to Mitchell Rd. where you can view the BG wind turbines, through a quiet golf course neighborhood, past City Park, concluding with a causeway finish inside the Wood County Fairgrounds. This course has little elevation changes, smooth paved roads, and will show you Bowling Green, Ohio like never before.

The Boy Scout 10k follows the same route as the half marathon until just after mile 4 where it turns off of N Main St. onto Liberty. It then reconnects with lead half marathoners on Fairview Ave. to follow the same course back to the fairgrounds. After entering the fairgrounds, 10k’ers will continue on the 5k finish route along track.

The Tenderfoot 5K course is a loop course beginning with the half marathon on Poe Rd., leading north up Haskins Rd. to Newton, back down Brim to a finish along the causeway of the Wood County fairgrounds. The course has little elevation changes, smooth paved roads, and is expected to provide very fast race times.
