Welcome to the VIRTUAL (but 6th annual) Fueling Education Fun Run and Walk sponsored by Shell Puget Sound Refinery and benefiting Anacortes students through the Anacortes School Foundation.
2020 has been a year we will not soon forget, and our schools need our continued support this year.
The 2020-21 School Year will look very different for Anacortes students due to Covid-19. All proceeds from your registration, sponsorship and donations will support student needs and changes related to Covid-19. Keep reading below on how a virtual race works.

- Take cool photos to be eligible for weekly prizes

ASD Staff and students Fee: $5 per person
Register to run or walk 2 miles or more anywhere, any time during the month of September. To register for the all-ages Fueling Education Fun Run, click the Register button -- Coming Soon.

Each week we will have a different photo theme contest including:

ASD Grant Competition

To participate...When you register, be sure to select the school in the Anacortes School District where you work or which school your children attend.
- The school with the highest percentage of their student body that participates in this race highly influences this grant, from Shell Puget Sound Refinery, of $5,000 to benefit that school.
- The winning school will be selected by Anacortes Schools Foundation in consult with the ASD Superintendent and announced via social media in October.
