The Quarry Farm 5K 2018 race will consist of two events: The Virtual 5K and an Onsite 5K.
The Virtual 5k is to be done at your own location and pace.
The Onsite Quarry Farm 5K is an easy (just two sloping hills!) out-and-back rural course that takes participants past a historic bridge, two scenic creeks to a rest halfway and back to the finish line at Red Fox Cabin.
Participants of both events will receive a custom race t-shirt!NEW FOR 2018: Onsite 5K participants will have the option of receieving a white t-shirt with The Quarry Farm logo on the chest. Runners/walkers wearing the white shirt will be 'painted' at various stations along the route. We will use liquid, non-toxic paints that will cool you down as you enjoy this colorful experience!
All 5K proceeds further the goal and mission of The Quarry Farm Nature Preserve & Conservation Farm to provide the opportunity for people of all ages to increase their understanding of the natural environment of Northwest Ohio and to interact with their fellow inhabitants in a sustainable manner.
By participating in the virtual 5k (at your own pace) or the onsite 5k (October 6, 2018), you are helping to support the work that we do by:
- Making it possible for the sanctuary animals, many of whom began their lives in fear and neglect, to reside here in peace with proper shelter.
- Providing species-specific food and bedding for sanctuary farm animals and fostered wildlife.
- Maintaining the nature preserve trails and control invasive plant species on the preserve and in the Red Fox Cabin gardens.
- Helping us to provide quality educational programming in science, the arts, Ohio history and critical thinking.
- Contributing to the development and installation of interpretive signage.
