The "10K Classic" was started in 1979 and was nationally known as the Wendy's 10K Classic. In 1988, the race name was changed to The Bowling Green 10K Classic and continued to draw thousands of people around the world to race in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Over the years, events have been added to this race such as the 10K wheelchair race, 5K run/walk, 1.5 mile fun walk and the Children's Classic. In 2000, The Medical Center became the Title Sponsor of the events. Now, in its 39th year, Med Center Health 10K Classic is known by all as "The Race for Everyone". This event captures every age and athletic ability and encourages the true mission of this race, health for all ages.
