    We are excited to present the 5th annual Wendell Foster Half Marathon and 5K, presented by Owensboro Health! Both routes are flat and fast, winding around scenic parts of Owensboro. The 13.1 half marathon and 3.1 5K are both fully supported, including some full and partial road closures. The race will start and finish on the waterfront next to the beautiful Smothers Park, which offers three signature fountains and an award-winning playground. Water stations will be conveniently placed along the course, and both races will be professionally timed. Big and bold finisher medals will be given to those who complete the course. In addition to the medals, prize money will be awarded to the top competitors in both the half marathon and 5K distances. For the half marathon distance, there will be a 4-hour course time limit to complete the race. You must be twelve years of age on race day to register for the half marathon. There is no age restriction for the 5K, or for rider athletes in the Stroller-Division. When you run with us, you are directly supporting Wendell Foster's mission of empowering people with disabilities! From all of us at Wendell Foster- thank you!
