In the summer of 2018 we are celebrating our 23rd 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.
