Runners will experience the tall grass prairie, woodlands, and maybe even some wildlife! In addition, grass surfaces will cushion the strides of each runner. Immediately following the events, runners will be treated with an ALL YOU CAN EAT pancake breakfast and a free single entry into the Fall Festival! Fall Festival is a conservation celebration of the changing seasons and will include hayrack rides, prairie story walk, live music, face painting, bow shoot, pumpkin patch, fresh pressed apple cider, popcorn, games, and giveaways!
