Event Description

The Fair on the Square Half Marathon, 5K & 1-mile walk Presented by Hendricks Regional Health is located on the beautiful Courthouse Square in Danville. Our event kicks off the annual Fair on the Square Fall Festival allowing runners to enjoy the festivities and festival offering from traditional small-town vendors.  Crafts, foods, apparel and one-of-a-kind offerings will make you smile.  The Courthouse Square is so unique that Hollywood filmed the Fall Festival for the movie Mayberry the week prior to our event in 2019.
