We formed the The Thumb Run Abouts 36 years ago. Pat Kellermann was the main organizer of our group. Pat felt that all people should be out running or walking for their health. She traveled the world doing both running and biking. Pat passed away about 10 years ago and since then we have hosted the races in her honor.
We run the races to support various groups. One of the main groups is Walk for Heat in Bad Axe. We also donate monies to Track and Cross Country Teams in Huron County.
We run two races the first being our Memorial Day Race the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend. This includes a 5K walk and Run and a 10K run around Bad Axe. The second race is our Turkey Trot on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. The awards for this race are Turkeys, Pumpkin Pies and Cider.
