Kick up your heels for Folkmoot 5K

Written by 
A race with an international flare, the annual Folkmoot 5K, will be held on Saturday, July 31, in Waynesville.
The 5K Run/Walk and Kid’s Fun Run is held in conjunction with the Folkmoot dance and music festival, which brings 300 international performers from a dozen countries to the mountains for two weeks of performances.
The race starts at 8 a.m. in front of the Folkmoot Center and follows a nearly flat route on neighborhood streets in the Hazelwood section of Waynesville. The race is “walk-friendly” and open to people of all abilities but also caters to the serious runner. Racers will be given timing chips.
A one-mile Fun Run for ages 15 and under takes place after the main event. Cost is $8 and includes a T-shirt and a finishers’ medal.
Cost for the 5K is $20 in advance or $25 on race day and includes a T-shirt. Medals for top winners in age class. Registration starts at 6:30 a.m. The race is put on in conjunction with Haywood County Parks & Recreation and Waynesville Parks & Recreation and has numerous local business sponsors.
