City of Owensboro Prepares for Wendell Foster Half Marathon

The City of Owensboro is preparing for the inaugural Wendell Foster Half Marathon presented by Owensboro Health on Saturday, March 23, 2019 beginning at 7:30am.

“We are excited to support Wendell Foster in bringing a new and exciting event to our community. Around 1,000 runners from more than 19 states around the country are registered to participate,” said Tim Ross, Director of Public Events for the City of Owensboro.

Ross would like to remind residents that streets will be closed intermittently in many parts of the city the morning of the race. Delays can be expected between 7:00am – 11:30am. Motorists are advised to use alternate routes, avoid areas along the race course, allow for extra driving time and proceed with caution on streets near the race course.
