2021 Event Information
We typically open registration for the Shawnee 50 at the start of the year, but at this time we are holding off on opening registration for 2021.  We are continuing to seek information from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) about how they will be issuing permits going forward during the COVID Pandemic.  We hope to host Ithe Shawnee 50 in October of 2021 and once we can be confident we can carry through with the event on that day we'll open registration and update everyone through social media, emails, and this website.  If changes are needed to be made we'll announce them in the same fashion.
