It's a family fun day! Come with your family or by yourself... our hope is that any and all ages experience a great day!

 

Clinton's Dr. John Warner Hospital has teamed up with the DJWH Foundation and DeWitt County Museum, in addition to severalt local sponsors and volunteers, to bring you the 2nd annual Swifty Swine 5K Trail Run and Walk! A free kiddie race, dubbed the "Piglet Prance," will follow the 5K awards ceremony.

 

The "swine" and "piglet" theme was formed due to the fact that Saturday, September 26th is day one of Clinton's weekend annual event - the 47th Annual Apple and Pork Festival held in Clinton, IL.

 

Run or walk the trail, enjoying beautiful scenic Weldon Springs State Park. Then make a day of it by checking out the vendors of crafts, foods and amazing goodies that the festival provides!
