Wendell Foster Half Marathon Fan Plan

Aug 22, 2022

For many athletes, there is a support system of family and friends who train with and encourage reaching personal goals. When race day comes, it is so special to have that support system alongside cheering throughout the event.

Here in our hometown of Owensboro, Kentucky, the Wendell Foster center hosts an annual Half Marathon in November. This year it occurs on November 12th.

This event raises funds for the great mission of Wendell Foster of “Empowering People With Disabilities.”  To find out more about this awesome race, click here:  Wendell Foster Half Marathon & 5K site

For athletes and their fans, we have created a “Fan Plan” which provides many cheering opportunities without crossing the runners' path for the half marathon.

This fan plan was based on spectating someone running 7 minutes per mile and being familiar with the roads to get to the next location.  If you are unfamiliar with the streets or are spectating someone faster, you may need to skip a few spots along the way. 

If you really want to see the finish, it would be best to skip a few of the last stops in order to find parking and get to the finish line area.

Hope you find this “Fan Plan” helpful.
