In the summer of 2019 we are celebrating our 24th year of the Neenah Summer Fun Run Series! 

The Fun Run Series was started in 1996 by a group of local running enthusiasts, including coaches and former Neenah High School athletes, many of whom are still involved today. 

The Fun Runs operate under the umbrella of the Neenah Park & Recreation Department and is staffed completely by volunteers. 

All of the runs, t-shirts, awards, and refreshments (for the runners) are provided free of charge thanks to the support of our generous sponsors and community. 



Fun Run Details

The Neenah Summer Fun Run Series consists of 5 runs for individuals age 14 and under held at Memorial Park in Neenah.  Participation is free of charge thanks to the support of our generous sponsors.

*Ages 6 & under may run 400 or 800 meters ( ¼ or ½ mile)
*Ages 7-9 run 800 meters ( ½ mile)
*Ages 10-14 run 1600 meters ( 1 mile)

Refreshments, for the runners, are provided in the pavilion after each race.

6 and under finishers will receive a participant ribbon at the finish line.  All other finishers can pick up ribbons at the Awards table.  Top ten finishers in each age group will also receive a place ribbon.  Please check results posted on the pavilion window.

We kindly ask please do not bring dogs.  We love our pets too, but Fun Runs cater to hundreds of small children carrying snacks.
