Run The Farm 5 MilerThe 5 mile race course is a trail run and passes through farm roads, forests, meadows, along steep hills, and over stone walls. There are some small seasonal streams and one wooden bridge. There are no large stream crossings. The two largest hills are at the one mile (long, not so steep) and the three mile (short and steep!) marks. Depending on the weather for prior days and weeks and the season of the year, some of the course may be wet and muddy but most of the course is well drained. The race has filled up in the past about a week before the race date. We anticipate demand being high again this year so sign up ASAP.Activity Starts: 10/23/2022 09:30 - Activity Ends:Registration opens : 1/7/2022 00:00Activity type: Trail raceRequires Date of BirthRequires phone numberGiveaway(s): Adult T-Shirt
Kids Run The FarmKids race is divided into ages 6 and under who run a 0.6 mile (1k) course and the 7-12 year olds who run a 1.1 mile (2k) course. Both courses are entirely on trails and dirt tracks on the farm. No pavement will be crossed. The kids races have filled up in the past. We order a set number of kids finisher medals. We cut off registration when we reach that number so we don't run short on medals. We can't sign up anyone after that point even if you say "my kid won't take a medal at the finish" (try enforcing that!). We anticipate demand being high again this year so please sign up ASAP.Activity Starts: 10/23/2022 08:30 - Activity Ends:Registration opens : 1/7/2022 00:00Activity type: Trail raceRequires Date of BirthRequires phone numberGiveaway(s): Kids T-Shirt
