By Marlys Mason Owensboro Times

Wendell Foster is proud to announce that Owensboro Health is now the premiere sponsor of the Wendell Foster Half Marathon that will be held in Owensboro on March 23.

“Owensboro Health is going to bring a lot of valuable resources to the table, including nutrition advice, help with the training runs, and more,” said John Gleason, Community Outreach Specialist at WF.

To kick off the training program associated with the half marathon, the sponsors — Owensboro Health, Legends, Rehabilitation & Performance Institute (RPI) and Wendell Foster — are providing incentives at the first 5-mile training run. Giveaways include a two month membership to the Healthpark, running shoes from Legends, four training sessions from RPI and a free race entry from WF.

Tomorrow is the first official training run for the race. It begins at 7:30 a.m. at Legends, located at 325 Park Plaza Drive.

The Legends’ training run schedule can be found on both Wendell Foster’s Facebook event page and Legends’ Facebook page as well as in the free training guide that is available on the race website, https://wendellfoster.org/Halfmarathon/.

The giveaway winners must be present at Saturday’s training run.
