Wendell Foster, a local agency serving people with disabilities, is unveiling the inaugural Wendell Foster 5K competitive road race! The 3.1 mile race will be held on Saturday, June 2nd at 8:00am, and will be an official timed event starting at Wendell Foster and traveling around the beautiful streets of downtown Owensboro.
With 15 different divisions, athletes will compete for one hundred dollars in cash to the overall male and female winners! Nice medals will be given to the top three in each division. Registration includes a bib with a chip time, free t-shirt, and recovery nutrition after the race. Runners, walkers and running strollers for people with different abilities are all welcome to compete!
John Gleason, Community Outreach Specialist at Wendell Foster and a local runner commented, “We believe this event will bring new faces to Wendell Foster. It will be an excellent opportunity to build community awareness for our services, while creating a fun and competitive atmosphere.”
Athletes are encouraged to take advantage of the $25 early bird racing fee until May 1st. One month prior to the race the fee will go up to $30, and then to $35 the week leading up to the race.
