CIC Run/Walk for Humanity June 2

The CIC Run/Walk for Humanity will be held Sunday, June 2 at the Catawba Island Club in Port Clinotn. Now 19 years old, this event is still a Catawba-Port Clinton community calendar highlight. “We always have close to 300 runners and walkers who participate in the 5-mile run or 3-mile run/walk. And for kids, we do a ¼ mile fun run. So this event is not only a great event for Ottawa County’s Habitat for Humanity, it is truly a family-based event. We welcome strollers, dogs and all ages to enjoy,” says CIC’s Michael Schenk.

Applications are still being accepted for all events and t-shirts will go to the first 250 registered.

Race day registration begins at 7:30 a.m. at the CIC Maintenance Building with parking in the lot across from the CIC Pro Shop on Beach Club Road. The 5-mile run starts promptly at 9 a.m. with the 3-mile run/walk starting at 9:15 a.m.
