Wendy’s Trek at the Track is officially underway for the 2023 season with an exciting line up of new offerings. Houchens’s Insurance Group, in partnership with Grange Insurance, has come on board as a new sponsor joining Wendy’s of Bowling Green, Bowling Green Municipal Utilities, Health Works, Howard’s Cycling & Fitness, and Nat’s Outdoor Sports.
Thanks to the generous support of these sponsors and new community partnerships, Wendy’s Trek at the Track will expand to include additional offerings this year. The Bowling Green Parks and Recreation Department will provide a weekly bike rodeo and safety training for young cycling enthusiasts, and the Bowling Green Police Department will host a Family Fitness Celebration on May 23rd commemorating 200 years of service in our community.
“We’re thrilled to have so much support and interest from the Bowling Green community and to see this program grow every year,” said Greg Waldron, Executive Director of the NCM Motorsports Park.
Wendy’s Trek at the Track is a free event and offers a safe, enclosed environment for individuals, friends, and families to come walk, jog, skate, or bicycle on the 3.2-mile road course. The track features a variety of elevations changes, too, offering a dynamic surface to exercise on. There are a number of configurations allowing guests to customize the length of their workout.
Pets are welcome at the facility if they are on a leash, and owners must clean up after their animals. Roller blades and roller skates are welcome; however, skateboards are asked to use the Skatepark downtown instead. Helmets are required. No motorized vehicles are allowed on the track during this activity. In the paddock, a large, flat, paved surface is available for anyone doing speed work.
“Wendy’s of Bowling Green has been a longtime supporter of community events throughout the region,” said Bayne Million, Marketing Officer. We are extremely proud of our community partnership and the opportunity to offer this family friendly activity to the southern Kentucky Community.”
