Sandusky 0.5K

The Sandusky 0.5K is an annual event taking place in July that helps raise money for Ability Works, Inc. 

This mere 1640 feet "race" aims to provide a fun atmosphere by incorporating donuts, beer, costume contests, and just plain silliness and fun for all involved to support a great cause, Ability Works!

2021 Sandusky 0.5K

This year we will be bringing all the fun and a slightly different kind of “race”. This year the Sandusky 0.5k will be bringing you the 2021 Sandusky Donut Eating Contest at Bait House Brewery on October 9th. We will have some food, drinks and of course donuts. Check out the Sandusky 0.5K Facebook page to stay updated.
