Because of her religious beliefs, a Kentucky High School cross country runner gave up her chance to qualify for the state championship race because of her bib number.

After her coach drew the number “6-6-6″ for her bib number, the junior from Whitly County High, Codie Thacker said the number went against her religious beliefs and then voluntarily forfeited herself in the regional championship race. A race that she has been training for since June.

The coach that drew the number 6-6-6, Gina Croley, knew that Thacker probably wouldn’t want to run with that number, so she took the problem to the judges of the race.  After arguing for the bib number change, the judges promptly told her that the number would NOT be changed.

Thacker said that running with “that number” on her chest would have went against what she believes in.  She said,

I didn’t want to risk my relationship with God and that number. I told them to mark out my name because it makes me sick just thinking that my name is associated with that number.
