The Folk Heritage Committee is excited to announce the 3rd Annual Run for Shindig on the Green, this Saturday June 28th at Carrier Park in Asheville.
Run for Shindig on the Green kicks off the 48th season of Shindig on the Green and is a key element in securing necessary funding for the free and beloved Shindig summer Saturday evenings.
The 5K race begins at 8:30 a.m. The two overall winners will be recognized at this year’s first Shindig on the Green, later that evening on June 28th, and all race participants are encouraged to attend. The overall male and female winners of the 5K will each receive a beautiful mug handcrafted by Mangum Pottery in Weaverville, NC. There will be additional medals and ribbons awarded to the winners of age divisions of the 5K Race.
The One-Mile Fun Walk/Run begins at 8:35 a.m. You can bring the kiddos, push that stroller, or take a jog with a couple of friends. Get movin’ and come on out to support Shindig!
