The annual Folkmoot 5K Walk/Run and Kids’ Fun Run, held in conjunction with the Folkmoot Dance and Music festival, will kick off at 8 a.m. on Saturday, July 23, in Waynesville. A kid’s fun run will be held at 9 a.m.
The race starts in front of the Folkmoot Center and follows a nearly flat route on neighborhood streets in the Hazelwood section of Waynesville.
The race has an international flair, given its connection with Folkmoot, which brings 300 international performers from a dozen countries to the mountains for two weeks of performances.
Cost is $20 for advance registration or $25 on the day-of. The Kids’ Fun Run is $8 or $10 on race day.
