About This Activity

Join us for our 3rd annual Dirt in the Skirt 5K raising money & awareness for childhood cancer research!

This 5K run/walk event will put you smack in the middle of nature as you run the rows and climb the hills around our orchards. You'll be dodging through our apple rows, side-stepping through our strawberry fields & dashing along our corn rows. As you push yourself through our 3.1 mile course, you'll also be raising money & awareness for childhood cancer research. Last year, we raised near $3,000 for CureSearch who's funding goes directly to find a cure for children's cancer. We're hoping to double the donated amount in 2017!

We're going to have some fun too! We're challenging all runners to flaunt a tutu or skirt during the run! For every person that wears a tutu or skirt, Stokes Homestead Farm Market will donate an extra $1 per person to CureSearch. All proceeds from the race & registration fees will go directly to CureSearch! 

There will be an after-party once you've completed the race with food & drinks & music!

Our 5K is not a timed, competitive event. We will have a clock running so you may gauge your time. However, we will not be using chip timing.
