It's hard to believe that it's been over a year since the pandemic started and organized races came to a halt. And, even now, we still are dealing with ever changing restrictions for group gatherings.
Running of the Bays (ROB) and the OLL 5K started as a joint community event in September 2014. Our goal was to have a fun, active, and family event for all ages in our small lake community while supporting local charities. With many restrictions still in place for larger group gatherings, we would not be able to have the event the way we intended. Therefore, we have decided to postpone ROB Half and OLL 5K for another year.
We want to have this event when we can have family and friends support you and celebrate you crossing the finish line. In essence, we want a GREAT event. So mark your calendars for September 10, 2022, for the comeback of ROB Half and OLL 5K.
