october 1, 2021-october 31, 2021
With the current surge of the COVID-19 pandemic, Med Center Health announced 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. 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 on this page.
Registration for the virtual event ends Friday, October 22 at midnight. Register HERE. 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.
Pick up of the shirts and medals will take place on Friday, October 22, 2021 at the parking structure on The Medical Center at Bowling Green campus from 5-7:30 pm. CLICK HERE for map to the parking structure. Additional options for pickup will take place at The Medical Center Health and Wellness location. Times TBD. Please stay tuned to your email and our social media for further updates.
Participants who wish to defer their registration to the 2022 event must complete the DEFERRAL FORM by Monday, October 4.
Since we have chosen to go virtual with the event this year, we no longer need volunteers for the day of the event. We truly appreciate all those that have reached out and hope to utilize your help next year!
