All are invited to join All Sport FUNdamentals on Saturday, May 17, in the heart of downtown Put-in-Bay, for a family FUN charity race event benefiting the Put-in-Bay Volunteer Fire Department and Senior Center.

The events will begin near the PIB Chamber of Commerce and will finish at DeRivera Park in historic downtown Put-in-Bay, near Put-in-Bay harbor and Perry’s Victory & International Peace Memorial.

As a thank you for registering, race participants will get discounts to island attractions, golf cart rentals, restaurants, pubs and ferry tickets to and from the island and will be given free transportation from the ferry dock to the event location and back anytime during the day. As participants cross the finish line, food and refreshments will be waiting.
Additionally, everyone running the 5k and 10k races will receive an event t-shirt and awards will be given to the fastest athletes in each division. All Family FUN Run participants and anyone else interested will have an opportunity to preorder an event t-shirt when registering online or by phone. T-shirts may be available for purchase at the event; however, preordering is recommended as they cannot guarantee the size or amount of t-shirts that will be available the day of the event.
