The Motor Mill historic site celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2020, and unfortunately the Motor Motor 5K was cancelled due to Covid-19.  Just for 2021 we are doing a remix! We’re adding a 10K option that will make use of the brand new Motor Mill Trail. Dirt dogs will still have the option to traverse the rugged hiking trails surrounding Motor Mill on the usual 5K course. Each participant will take home a beautiful stoneware coffee mug while supplies last including the iconic visage of the mill itself.
