City of Huntingburg Once Again Hosting Annual “5-5-5” 5K Series (with VIDEO)

Huntingburg (Local Sources) – The City of Huntingburg is hosting the fourth annual “5-5-5,” a series of monthly 5K fun walk/runs intended to give people a chance to exercise in an enjoyable group setting. “5-5-5,” a program created by Huntingburg Mayor Denny Spinner, will take place on the second Friday of the month from May through September at 5:00 p.m. “5-5-5” will occur on Fridays, May 12, June 9, July 14, August 11 and September 8, 2017.

“I’ve been thrilled with the community response for “5-5-5” the past few years,” says Mayor Spinner. “The number of participants continues to grow, which proves this is a valuable program for all those involved.”

Children and adults of every fitness level are encouraged to participate in “5-5-5.”  Participants should meet at Huntingburg City Hall, located at 508 E. 4th Street, prior to the 5:00 p.m. start time. There will be no timers during each 5K as it is meant to be a social opportunity that incorporates physical activity.

Participants must sign in at the registration table prior to each event, but are only required to sign a waiver before to their first event. Waivers are available at Water and healthy snacks will be provided at the end of each 5K.  Those who participate in all 5 events will receive a free t-shirt.

Corporate partners for “5-5-5” include Farbest Foods, Hometown IGA, MasterBrand Cabinets, OFS Brands, Tri-County YMCA and Dubois Wood Products.
