Smart Farm of Barrington is a local 501c3 non-profit organization (www.smartfarms.org). Our mission is to cultivate a healthy community by providing educational opportunities focused on sustainable gardening techniques, promoting the benefits of sustainable gardening and donating fresh produce to support our neighbors in need.
The 5K course is located at 511 Lake Zurich Rd. (at Rte 14), Barrington, Il at the beautiful Citizens Park. The course will consist of an open field start to spread the racers out and then narrowing into meandering prairie and wooded trails looping back to the start. We just need mother nature to cooperate with the snow.
