Description:

Bring your family and friends to run, walk, mosey or saunter with us along our beautiful, trail-run loop. The course will start at the farmhouse, head off-road through NCOF’s beautiful woodland, then turn right along the aqueduct before continuing on the grass boundaries of Memorial School and heading up the Farm’s driveway into the yard of NCOF’s historic 1815 barn. Choose to walk or run 1 mile (one loop), or go the full 5K distance (3 loops). Distances and directions will be clearly marked by experienced race coordinators. Adults pushing strollers are welcome to participate in the fun run/walk. No dogs please. Official numbers and timing services will make this a true race experience, while human and livestock course marshals will give it a distinctively farmy flair.

Starting Time:
5K Run starts at 8 AM. Runner check-in and registration opens at 7:15 AM.
1 Mile Fun Walk/Run starts at 8:30 AM. Please arrive by 7:50 as driveway will be closed to cars at 7:50 AM. Families are welcome to walk around the farm and view the animals prior to the fun run/walk start time.

The first 100 to register will receive a commemorative reusable mason jar drinking glass. All race participants will receive free admission to NCOF’s Spring Spectacular outdoor spring event, which runs 10 AM-2 PM on the same day. Ribbons for the top 3 finishers.
