Runner refuses to wear No. 666

A Kentucky high school student refused to run in a regional cross-country race after she was assigned bib No. 666 in Lexington.

Whitley County High School junior Codie Thacker told the station that wearing the number, considered by some to be the “Mark of the Beast,” would have gone against her religious beliefs, and that she’d rather not run — giving up a chance to compete in the state championships — than wear 666.

"I didn't want to risk my relationship with God and try to take that number," Thacker said.

Thacker’s coach, Gina Croley, says she asked three different race officials to swap out Thacker’s bib for a new number, but each time, she says, she was denied.
