Saturday, June 2, 2018 | 10 am to 2pm | Downtown Decatur, IL

The French Fried 5k & Street Party is back again to liven up downtown Decatur on June 2, 2018. This non-traditional 5k and street party combines entertainment, exercise and fried foods in a way that appeals to everyone from runners to “just wanna have funners”.

For the serious runners, this event will be timed like a traditional 5k. However, “funners” can walk the route, ride in a golf cart, or even bypass a portion and go straight to the party at the end. The route will once again feature multiple refreshment stops where runners can choose water and a banana, and “funners” can indulge in a beer and/or “less than healthy” treats.

The Street Party in historic Central Park, features local favorite party band “Wreckless Whiskey”, drinks and “Taste of Decatur” style food booths featuring local restaurant tents serving up sample sizes of their most popular menu items.
