About This Activity

It is 2014 & we are all excited for this year's 38th annual Common Ground Fair. For the start of Sunday's Finale, all are invited to take part in one of the oldest and most traditional forms of contest: the foot race. One need only swiftness of feet and strength of spirit to pit themselves against the 5000 meter organically maintained racing grounds. That's correct... unlike other race courses, this unique terrain treats your soles to organically rich & nutrient dense footing that will fuel your footsteps for the opening of the fairgrounds. So come enjoy some early morning exercise, wonderful camaraderie, and one of the BEST fair experiences around.

 

New this year! There will be a cash prize awarded to the top male or female for breaking the course records, which were set by Adam Goode (15:29) in 2012 and Leah Frost (18:55) in 2013.

 

Online registration is open until September 20 at Noon.
