Snow Flurry Scurry reaches new heights in fifth year

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – A light snow shower on Saturday morning did not dampen the spirits for the Fifth Annual Snow Flurry Scurry, held at Lost River Cave.

Runners took to the trails at Bowling Green’s popular attraction, all for a good cause.

The race began on the paved Greenways Trail, crossed Cave Mill Road through the Bark Park and then looped back to the finish line at the cave entrance.

Thanks in part to community sponsors, all of the proceeds of the race were put back into Lost River Cave, to help fund things like trails, tours and even ziplines.

“It’s great just because it is a great place located right in the middle of town that you can very easily get to and check everything out here,” David Haynes, a participant in the race said of Lost River Cave. “There’s caves here, there’s nature, there’s walking. It is just something great to have in the middle of a town the size of Bowling Green.”

Haynes also said this year saw nearly 400 participants, almost 100 more than last year.
