We believe that as a local business here in Lima we should give back to the community that we serve. The West Ohio Food Bank will deliver about six and a half million pounds of food this year to over 100+ agencies, shelters, soup kitchens and pantries in their 11 county service area. This being said, they need all the help they can get. So, for the last several years we have hosted this event to raise awareness and donations. The event will be held on Saturday September 2, 2017, registration starts at 8:00 and the race at 9am. Registration fee is $25. The race will start at the Faurot Park Amphitheater, and travel through the beautiful scenic bike trail and back to the park. We’ll be using a chip timer! Refreshments available after race
