The 40th Constitution 5K Run for the Arts

The historic 40th Running of The Constitution 5K Run for the Arts is upon us! Come run this Sept. 8th at 8am in Danville's oldest running tradition - now in its 10th year as a fundraiser for the Community Arts Center.

Split times will be given at the 1 and 2 mile markers.  Water will be available at an aid station on the course and at the finish area.  Restrooms are available at the Arts Center and Constitution Square. A light breakfast awaits you at race's end.

The first 165 entrants will receive a unique and commemorative '40th Anniversary' shirt.

Overall and age-group winners will receive unique and artistic awards from the Community Arts Center itself.



The Smokin' Butt Bike Ride (24 Miles)

Directly after The Constitution 5K at 10am, wheel on down to Danville Bike and Footwear and take a leisurely ride out Bluegrass Pike, through historic Harrodsburg, then down the rolling hills of Bellows Mill and Buster Pike to arrive back in Danville. All paces are welcome and everyone will have people to ride with. The course will be marked, ride leaders will guide the way and a support vehicle will follow the ride, providing assistance and security for riders of all skill levels.



The Tour D'Ville

We're excited to announce a new, monthly group bike riding opportunity highlighting our scenic community. Spearheaded by Rick Serres, The Tour D'Ville will occur on the first Saturday of every month from April through October. It will start at 3pm and leave from Wiesiger Park (except on Derby Day, when the ride will start at 1pm). 

The tour is free (besides costing some calories!) though participants are encouraged to donate to a chosen local charity corresponding to each day (more info below).

The route will be around 10 to 15 miles and take approximately 2 hours, passing by these Danville landmarks:
  • Wiesiger Plaza
  • Community Arts Center
  • Boyle County Public Library
  • Great American Dollhouse Museum
  • Jackson Park
  • Maple Ave.
