The Twins Days 5K run/walk will take place on Sunday morning at Dodge Intermediate School, which is across the street from the festival site. This event intends to promote and enjoy fitness while raising money for a worthy cause. The Melanoma Education Initiative will be our selected charity this year.

There will also be a kids’ “fun run” of just under ¼ mile on the track.

Prizes will be awarded for the top three finishers overall as well as the top three finishers in each age group.
