The 7th annual Dairy Dash & Stroll 5K Run/Walk will be held in conjuction with the Shawano County Brunch on the Farm held this year at Nischke's Back 40 Acres (N3220 Cedar Rd) in Pulaski, WI.
The Shawano County Brunch on the Farm, hosted by the Shawano County Farm Bureau, is a much-loved event encouraging people to spend a day on the farm. This event draws over 2,500 people each year and is full of family-fun events where people get to learn about the local dairy industry. These events include tractor-ride tours, wagon rides, petting zoos, children's games with prizes, pedal tractor pull, barrel train rides, and more. Also enjoy a hearty breakfast of eggs, sausage, cheese, milk, ice cream, and much more! We encourage everyone to come and interact with our local farmers to learn more about agriculture and how our food goes from the farm to your plate.
This 5K course will be held on the farm, so it will consist of a dirt/off-road course accompanied by a series of hills and fluctuating terrain. As this is a dirt course, be prepared for some interesting and fun challenges if we get precipitation prior to or during the event! (Side note - this course may not be the most conducive for strollers or small children.)
We encourage people of all ages to join us in this fun and unique event! Participants will enjoy some scenic views of the dairy farm including barns, dairy cows, wooded areas, crop fields, and other events at the Brunch on the Farm.
After the run/walk enjoy your hard work with some healthy chocolate milk and a free ticket for a hearty farm breakfast! After the race, make sure to take some time to enjoy the many other events that Shawano County Brunch on the Farm has to offer.
All race event proceeds will be donated to the Shawano Area Food Pantry and Resource Center. Come & support a great cause that works hard to provide sustainable food to those in our local communities. To learn more about these organizations, please check out the following links:
