Event details and schedule

Pre Race: Make sure to arrive early to ensure time for parking, registration, bib pick up, warm up, etc.

5K Run: Features a flat, easy course around town and senic farmland.

10K Run: Features a flat, easy course around town with scenic farmland. Including a one-mile loop in town at start and near the end of race.

Although we make every effort to make the course as flat as possible, farmland is likely to be uneven and therefore cannot allow strollers on the course. Please run the farm portion of the course with caution.

1Mile Run/Walk (Children): fun run for children ages 12 and under. Participant ribbons will be provided. This run is not timed and is free of charge.

Post Race: Our award ceremony starts at 10:45am and will need to have all runners finish the course by 11am. We welcome athletes of all levels but do keep in mind there is a time cap. Local vendors have been kind enough to provide post race snacks, beverages, and some take home goodies!
