Better weather is approaching and with that comes Outdoor Activities! A great way to get moving in 2020 is by getting outside and getting active. #MyFrenchLick has several ways to keep you moving all year! Check out the great reasons to get moving in 2020!




Heartland Hustle – is a 5K run/walk through historic downtown Paoli, the route is filled with original art, created for the event! This event features incredible regional musicians. In 2020, the HeARTland Hustle is honoring Lotus Dickey, the beloved Orange Countian is a globally celebrated musician. He was a mentor and a musical inspiration on the fiddle, guitar, as well as a songwriter.



French Lick Family Classic 5K & Kids 1-Mile Mini Run/Walk – this year’s Family Classic will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project! Conquer the course, then enjoy the camaraderie, activities and awards at French Lick Resort! Lace up for a great day of fun and fitness!



Dogwood Pedal – the Pedal is a bicycle tour, through the gorgeous backdrop of Southern Indiana. Join in for 25, 50, 75, and even a 100-mile tour! You’ll enjoy various famous landmarks in Orange and Lawrence counties. This ride is not for the faint of heart, it is a grueling and hilly ride, the scenery definitely makes it worth your time!



Full Moon 5K at Patoka Lake – this 3.1-mile moonlit run is a great way to enjoy the gorgeous scenery of Patoka Lake’s trails. You’re racing for a cause, all proceeds go to benefit the amazing non-releasable raptors at the Patoka Lake Nature Center, including a bald eagle, red-tailed hawk, and Eastern screech owl!



Dash for the Glass 5K at Patoka Lake Winery – all ages are welcome, but those entrants 21 and over can enjoy a glass of wine after they finish the race! This race supports a great cause, the Men and Women who serve in our local troops, as well as veterans. Enjoy the after party with music, snacks, and awards!


Of course, you should stretch before any physical activity and that’s where Kara at So IN Body Movement, Yoga, & Wellness comes in! Kara attends several of these dashes and 5K’s to help you get warmed up before the big race!

So IN Body Movement, Yoga, & Wellness – this movement and yoga studio offers weekly public classes at Kara’s home studio. They also offer multiple retreats per year- with delicious farm to table meals! Kara specializes in teaching mindfulness, which has had a tremendous impact with the youth in our community!
