The Medical Center 10K Classic was just 63 days away as of Friday. A press conference laid out the schedule of the day's events near WKU's campus on October 19. If a 10K sounds like too much, the event offers other options such as a 1.5 mile walk and a 5K race. No matter which you choose, it's all part of creating a healthier lifestyle in the community.
"We feel like if you can become physically active that's going to help with obesity. If we can control obesity we can control a number of health issues. It's a big event for Bowling Green and The Medical Center feels that if aligns very well with our mission." said Race Director, Doris Thomas.
The day also includes the Children's Classic race for younger runners. Officials with the event say there is still plenty of time to train and if you'd like some tips on how to prepare, you can click on the link below.
