Bowling Green resident to run 141 miles over 5 days for MS

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- A young Bowling Green man is taking on the ultimate feat – running 141 miles over five days and all for a good cause. 

Logan Locke, 24, is running the cross country relay for MS, from Indiana to Ohio. The MS Run the US ultra-relay is a 3,260 mile run all across the United States to raise awareness and funds to help cure Multiple Sclerosis. 

Locke had been a cheerleader during his time at Western Kentucky University, and took up running to better his health. Now he wants to take his passion for running and help others who can’t do it themselves. 

His portion takes place in July, but he will be training and preparing for it this winter and spring. There are 19 total runners to do a segment of the over 3,000 mile run and half of his fellow teammates have MS. 

“You know I was passionate about it before but once we had our first team call, and I saw how many of my teammates battle this disease as it is, it makes me wanna push myself even more and gives me even more of a drive to help make a difference and help people understand what MS is. And help them realize that my job is easy – running 28 miles a day, I would gladly do it if it’s gonna help raise money for people that battle it and especially those severe cases when they don’t have the financial abilities to get the wheelchairs they need or the stairlifts that they need,” said Locke.
