Event schedule and times

Pre Race: Make sure to arrive early to ensure time for parking, registration, bib pick up, warm up, etc. Make sure to bring an ID for bib pick-up.

10K Run: Features a flat, easy course paved with scenic farm roads including two one-mile loops in town at start and near the end of race.

5K Run/Walk: Features a flat, easy course around town and through scenic farm roads.

Although we make every effort to make the course as flat as possible, farmland is very likely to be uneven and therefore cannot allow strollers on the course. Please run the farm portion of the course with caution.

Youth 1 Miler: One-mile fun run for children ages 12 and under. Participant ribbons will be provided. This run is not timed and is free of charge.

Post Race: We will have an award ceremony at 11am so all runners need to finish the course by 11am. We welcome athletes of all levels but do keep in mind there is a time cap. Local vendors have been kind enough to provide post race snacks, beverages, and some take home goodies!
