Grandma Got Run Over by BG!

Some of the most popular pastimes many families enjoy together during the holiday season are runs, races, marathons, and 5Ks! The “Turkey Trot” became a staple American Thanksgiving tradition in 1896 that has now spread across the country. Running USA estimates one million Americans will participate in a holiday themed run during the calendar year.

A large reason runs have become a common Thanksgiving practice isn’t necessarily because everyone is an avid runner. In the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday, many families participate in charity runs as a way to show their thanks for their well-being and to help contribute to a cause. Even if you aren’t someone who is super into physical activity and exercise, participating in these runs can be a great personal challenge, a way to give back, and potentially a great, new tradition.

If you are looking to start new traditions or get involved in the community this holiday season: Bowling Green has 13 different runs scheduled during the month of November! Some of the runs that raise money for a cause in Bowling Green are:

  • Kickin’ Kawasaki 5K, 11/09 (Raises money for Kawasaki’s Disease)
  • Jingle Bell Run, 11/18 (Raises money for Arthritis Foundation)
  • Great Turkey 5K, 11/23 (Raises money for Bowling Green Road Runners’ High School Athletics Program)

With all the races and opportunity to raise money this November… Grandma definitely did not get run over by a reindeer but by the great community of Bowling Green!

We are so thankful to be a part of the Bowling Green community. If you are looking to get involved in other ways in Bowling Green, feel free to become a volunteer at the RailPark! We are so incredibly grateful to have the generous support of volunteers and we promise you don’t even have to run!

We Love our Volunteers!
