The 2015 Twinkie 10K Run is set for Tuesday, June 16 at 6:30pm!

How It Works

The Twinkie 10K is either a solo 10K run or it can be split up by two teammates into two separate 5Ks. Each runner or team predicts how long their run will take them. Runners will start based on their predicted times, with slower-time runners being released first and faster-time runners being released later. If everyone ran their predicted time, everyone will finish at the exact same moment. This has never happened (yet).

Registration

Please fill out a REGISTRATION FORM and mail it in so that it arrives before Monday, June 15th. If you're running late or simply prefer to register online, please e-mail info@dbfky.com with your name(s) and predicted time.

Who It Helps

Every dollar earned by The Twinkie 10K goes towards building walking, running and biking trails in and around Boyle County via the Boyle County Trails Alliance. This last year, the Twinkie and Danville Bike and Footwear were able to donate $1,000 towards new trails. Registration is only $5 per person (MUCH less than most 5Ks) but extra donations are welcome, encouraged and will help make more fun, safe places for people to exercise outside!

History

This extremely casual celebration of running has been going on for about 35 years. It was started by the Gwinn Island Striders, the area's first semi-organized running group.
