The 6th Annual Perry's Victory Family Races will be held on Sunday, August 26, 2018 at Put-in-Bay, Ohio (South Bass Island). This is a great opportunity to take one last summer vacation and enjoy a day on the beautiful island of Put-in-Bay! The route has been designed to take you on a scenic tour of the historic island of Put-in-Bay with the hub of the race being held by the lawn of the Peace Garden at Perry's Victory & International Peace Memorial. The event will offer a Kids FUN Run, 10k Run and a 5k Run/Walk.

Unfortunately after speaking with researchers at The Ohio State University's Franz Theodore Stone Laboratory located on Gibraltar Island in the harbor of South Bass Island (Put-in-Bay) the water is not safe for athletes and the multisport portion of the Perry's Victory Races has been canceled. We know this is less than ideal however athlete safety is our number one priority. The islands are surrounded by a hazardous algae bloom (HAB) in the medium range, therefore the levels are not safe for athletes. See chart below.
