The Ramblin Relics of Southern Ohio announced last week that the 48th Annual Country Run for Fun will be held this Sunday, June 27th. The event will once again be held at the Adams County Fairgrounds in West Union.
The gate to the event will open at 8:00 a.m. for the estimated up to 150 street rods, muscle cars, custom trucks and other specialty vehicles which are expected to be in attendance from several states. Vehicles registered for judging must be in place by 1:00 p.m. According to event organizers, 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 tradition at the Country Run for Fun is a large line-up of games for adults and children which will begin at 11:30 a.m. Registered participants and spectators can get involved in the games. 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. Planners of the event say that the games this year will be a bit more somber as the Ramblin Relics lost long-time member, Duard Hughes in December of 2020. Hughes was often referred to as ‘Game Commissioner’ as he was the primary organizers of the games that many participants look forward to each year. Hughes will be memorialized at this year’s run.
A split the pot drawing will be held and food will be available on the grounds. The event will conclude with award presentations and the grand prize drawing at 3:30 p.m. Proceeds from the Country Run for Fun are used to fund the Ramblin’ Relics donations to local charities.
