Bg26.2 Marathon Reviews

5.0 Stars from 1 Runners

  BG26.2 in Bowling Green, KY

By about 2017


I liked this race, a lot harder than Chicago, but easier than Nashville. It is a double loop course, not my favorite. The first mile is brutal, first 6 is hilly around WKU campus. Swag is awesome. Wish finisher medal was different for half vs whole, but classic and heavy. The course is pretty neat. Plenty of water, Gatorade, pickle juice, watermelon, gel ect... 6th year of race, first half is nice when you are running with the halfers, only 160 run the full. Nice meal at Corvette Museum night before race. Raises money for MS. Can't be compared to the big races, that would not be fair. If you Boston qualify on this course, you are a beast. I finished 57 of 166, time 4:35. My PR Chicago 4:23. Just started running distance last year. Warmer than usual 2017, and was quite windy. Course marked very well. Bowling Green is very nice. I run this honestly to help me prepare for Disney in January. Race has pacers, no splits called. I would rate the half very high because you get hills out of the way at begging of race. Young marathon and poised to grow! Price around $100. Very fair considering great cause at great swag!

Race Tips

Major hills at beginning, double loop course, so hills again at 14 mile mark. Well organized!
