Overview

The race starts near the Trinity Baptist Church on Smallhouse Road and the finish line that brings runners into Bowling Green’s Basil Griffin Park, where they’ll be greeted by a line of Corvettes as they run in to complete their race.

Largely fast and flat and run on paved surfaces throughout, the race takes runners from the church southward along Three Springs Road, across the William Natcher Parkway to Matlock Road, where they turn left and head south on Matlock.

Just past the intersection with Mt. Pleasant Cemetery Road, runners hit the turnaround point and then head back up Matlock Road, and turn right when the hit Carter Sims Road for a brief loop around Baldock and Plano Roads, before heading back onto Matlock for the remainder of the course back toward the finish.

Runners finish the race inside Basil Griffin Park, where the Corvettes are a reminder that Bowling Green is home to the country’s only National Corvette Museum, a 68,000-sq.-ft. facility that serves as a showcase for more than 50 Corvette models and concept cars, and which race participants as well as their friends and family can visit while they’re in town.
