Fun Run + Fitness

Ever since a small group of runners gathered at the Institute of Food Technologist’s 2001 annual meeting in an effort to get some exercise and raise funds for students, the Fun Run + Fitness has been an amazing opportunity to raise funds, join a community, and break a sweat!

Funds raised at the event support scholarships for students pursuing careers in the science of food.

Information about 2023 Fun Run + Fitness will be posted in March 2023.
