Thundering Hooves 5K is a fun run/walk set in Western Howard County. The trail course meanders throughout the rescue's 130 acre farm, giving the runners spectacular views of the undulating pastures and all of our draft horses. The course makes use of all types of terrain - across our rolling hills, through our woodlots and along the creek bottom. You will not find a prettier race course. The course is not stroller friendly. Be sure to stay after the race to meet the horses.
We have added a virtual runner for those who can't make the event but still want to support the rescue. You will receive a Thundering Hooves T-shirt. (These will be mailed, so be sure to include your complete mailing address, these will be mailed after the event)
Participants will pick up their packets and Thundering Hooves T-shirts at the registration table.
Walkers are Welcome.
