The Ramblin Relics of Southern Ohio are pleased to announce their 41st annual Country Run for Fun. This year’s event will take place on Sunday, June 29 with the headquarters for the Country Run for Fun being the Adams County Fairgrounds in West Union.
Gates will open at 8 a.m. for the estimated 200 or more street rods, muscle cars, custom trucks, and other specialty vehicles that are expected to be in attendance. Spectators are welcome for a small admission charge.
The car club will recognize the Top 20 vehicles in attendance as well as several specialty award winners. A grand prize of $2oo cash will be awarded, by random drawing, to a registered participant in attendance.
The day will also feature a non-denominational church service with singing by local gospel singer Jason Cooper at 11 a.m. A tradition at the Country Run for Fun is a large line-up of games for adults and children which will begin following the church service. Some of the games include the fan belt toss, the lifter drop, a balloon toss, and the very popular adult tricycle race and creeper race. Other events on the day will include a children’s coloring contest and a split the pot drawing. The Country Run for Fun will conclude with award presentations and the grand prize drawing at 3:30 p.m.
Pre-registration ($12) for the Run for Fun can be made by calling Kenneth or Judith McCann at 937-544-5266. Walk-in registration will be available at the fairgrounds on the day of the event from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. All of the profits from the Run for Fun are used to fund the Ramblin Relics annual scholarship fund and for donations to local charities.
