5K On The Farm is a unique race held on a northern Montana dryland farm and ranch. The course is run entirely on high-grade county maintained gravel roads at Bangs Family Farm and gives runners a view of farmland, ranch pastures, mountains, and prairies. Lunch will be served to race participants after the race, and all participants will receive a race t-shirt and goody bag.
Race proceeds benefit education and leadership training through Montana Farmers Union. A percentage of race proceeds may also be donated to local community organizations, such as North Star and/or CJI Schools.
