With the current surge of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 42nd running of the Med Center Health 10K Classic will now be a virtual event. Participants have the option to complete the race virtually in October or defer their registration to the 2022 event.
“After multiple discussions with the 10K Race Committee, Med Center Health feels it is in the best interest of the health of our participants to make this year’s race a virtual event,” said Sarah Widener, 10k Race Director and Community Wellness Director for Med Center Health. “We did not come to this decision lightly or easily. We do not feel a gathering of this size, even if outside, is safe given the high rate of transmission we’re still seeing with COVID.”
Participants choosing the virtual option are encouraged to complete their event (10K, 10K Wheelchair or 5K Run/Walk) on the course of their choice between October 1 and 31. They may also use the traditional Med Center Health 10K Classic course by following an up-to-date map available at MCH10K.com.
Registration for the virtual event ends Friday, October 22 at midnight. Register online at https://runsignup.com/Race/KY/BowlingGreen/themedicalcenter10kclassic. Each participant will receive a long-sleeve T-shirt and medal. Because the race is operating on the honor system, there will be no age group awards or cash drawing this year.
Participants who wish to defer their registration to the 2022 event must complete the deferral form at medchealth.org/10kdeferral by Monday, October 4.
