Come experience a race like no other! Runners will wind their way throughout our 300 acre farm with over 120+ draft horses ready to run alongside you! Run through wooden forest trails and out onto grass and gravel pathways that will lead you to an incredible view of the entire farm. Power up two steep climbs to enjoy the most stunning valley views, with rescued horses galloping across wide open pastures.
Not only will you experience running alongside massive draft horses, you’ll also get a free beer ticket for a cold brew from the Union Craft Brewing Beer Tent at the end of the race AND the opportunity to meet our 20.1 hand tall viral sensation, Phantom! He'll be participating in our drill team and making appearances for photos at the beer tent throughout the day.
Local adopters are bringing their Gentle Giants alumni to showcase the incredible things our rescued drafts can do!
Watch our Mounted Archery team gallop full speed down the chute as they drop their reins to aim at the target! Our 8 horse Drill Team will also be performing a stunning choreographed routine!
