Results from the 2018 Twinkie (The Run Anyone Can Win). Though it stormed mightily all day, come race time the clouds parted and the faithful were rewarded with a cool and beautiful evening. We promise there were no shenanigans regarding the winner... Many thanks to Immanuel Baptist Church for hosting us for the 38th (?!?!?) year in a row. Of course, my favorite part is getting to talk with EG Plummer during the run!



The 2018 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.
  • Millenium Park
  • Centre College

  • Kentucky School for the Deaf
  • Clarks Run Trail
  • Pioneer Playhouse
  • Chateau Du View Corbeau Winery
  • Henson Pond
  • Lexington Ave
  • Water Park Plant

  • Downtown Danville
If there is interest, an extended trip out to and back from Wilderness Trail Distillery can be added on for an additional 5 or so miles.
