June Update

The northwest Ohio racing scene is flourishing with ultra fun and excitement for everyone! Our Tigertown "Prize Patrol" is out on the road visiting our wonderful sponsors and seeing another increase of ownership by these great people! Thank you for believing in our growing event! Have you downloaded your race entry for 2017 from this website, Toledo Roadrunners or one of many websites that promotes running? Entries can also be picked up at Liberty Center businesses such as Pisanello's Pizza and the Henry County Bank. After all the "dust clears" and receipts are paid we reach-out to many organizations (National Honor Society, church youth groups, 4-H groups) with incentives for their time and efforts for helping us provide the best racing can offer! We also support our Village of Liberty Center Parks system with a financial contribution for maintenance and upgrades for our children. Tigertown lastly supports our school system and provides scholarships for our graduating Seniors in a very unique way... Thanks to everyone for being part of Tigertown!
