As of July 22nd, the Erie Shores Council (BSA), in close consultation with local health officials and race management, has made the difficult decision that the 2020 Boy Scout Half Marathon, 10K and Tenderfoot 5K will not be held in person this year. The health and well-being of our participants, volunteers, staff and community are our top priorities. We are greatly disappointed about having to cancel, but amid the increase in COVID-19 cases nationwide we are not willing to put everyone who makes this race such a terrific event at greater risk.
We are offering three options to existing registrants as our thank you for being loyal runners and staying positive throughout this process.
Registration for the virtual events will remain open to new registrants through August 27, 2020.
A great late summer half marathon,this half marathon course aims to highlight the best of Bowling Green. Maintaining the start and finish line at the Wood County Fairgrounds, your run will take you through eclectic downtown BG to the Slippery Elm Trail, out to Mitchell Rd. where you can view the BG wind turbines, through a quiet golf course neighborhood, past City Park, concluding with a finish inside the Wood County Fairgrounds. This course has little elevation changes, smooth paved roads, and will show you Bowling Green like never before.
Packet Pickup information will be published in advance on the event page:
