The Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce has created a whole month of social distancing activities for everyone to enjoy! You can find more details on each event below and on the Facebook event pages.
Virtual Apple Run: https://runsignup.com/Race/OH/OakHarbor/OakHarborVirtualAppleRun
Due to COVID-19 the Oak Harbor Apple Run has gone virtual! This allows you to get out and exercise and support a great cause while social distancing!
Every participant will receive a swag bag with a 2020 Apple Run t-shirt and medal. We will be having the 5K run/walk and the Kids 1 Mile run/walk. All registration is done through RunSignUp.com. Once you register, you simply run/walk your designated race anytime between October 1 and October 11, 2020 and submit your time on Run Signup. You can run the Apple Run course or your own 5k or 1 mile.
Since every participant will be receiving a medal we are not doing separate age group awards, and all funds raised will go to support Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce Events and Programs. You can choose to pick up your race packet or pay shipping and we will mail it to you.
Shop Local Drawings: https://www.facebook.com/events/2796130983996326
As a way to encourage local spending the Oak Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce will be holding a Shop Local drawing for each week in October.
To Enter, shop at 3 different Oak Harbor Chamber members each week and submit your receipts via Facebook Messenger, Email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by dropping off in our lock box with your name and phone number. Each week we will draw 4 winners for $50 Chamber Gift Certificates. Enter as many times as you want each week but your receipts must be from 3 different businesses each time. A complete list of Chamber Members is available on our Facebook page or on our website at www.OakHarborOhio.net. The weeks begin on Monday and end the following Sunday. The first week starts October 5. The drawings will take place on October 12, 19, 26 and November 2. We will award 4 winners each week.
