About This Activity

****JULY 27, 2018 UPDATE**** -  Registration on this site closed? Don't worry, we WILL be taking same day registrations. However, it is recommended that those who wish to do so arrive early (7-7:30 a.m.) to allow time to accept payment and obtain a bib. Please note that we cannot guarantee receipt of sponsor-provided goodies, or your t-shirt size if you register in this manner. We will be able to accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover at the race for your convenience. Hope to see you there!

Enjoy a unique opportunity to run through the orchard at Fishkill Farms with three separate races!

The day will start at 8 a.m. with the Kids' Dash, where kids race one another 1,000 meters (just over 1/2 mile) on a separate course in the heart of Fishkill Farms.

The next race up? Adults (and children) can compete on a designated 5K course that winds through Fishkill Farms' beautiful apple orchards.

Family and/or kids can wrap up with the final event, the 5k Donut Run (or walk) and enjoy the apple orchards at any pace.

You may ask - what is the different in the 5k Orchard Run and the 5k Donut Run? While adults and kids can run in either race, the 5k Orchard Run is aimed at competitors who are looking to earn the best time. The 5k Donut Run is to give an opportunity to those who want to walk or run the 5k course, allowing a chance to enjoy it at one's own leisure.

Race to beat your personal best time, just run to have fun or simply enjoy the Hudson Valley. Either way the day will be full of fun and fitness for you and your family! You will receive a t-shirt and the chance to enjoy a free Fishkill Farm's famous cider donut after your event.

Stay at Fishkill Farms after the race to listen to music, enjoy the beautiful views of the Hudson Valley, have a bite to eat and pick the produce in season at Fishkill Farms' orchards.

Please note, the race is rain or shine, so registration is non-refundable. 100% of proceeds taken in by Fishkill Rotary go directly to benefit the local community!

***Due to t-shirt printing deadlines, please note that if you registered after July 15, we cannot guarantee t-shirt sizes. However, we will do our very best to accommodate your request!!! This is why you were not asked for your t-shirt size.***
