This 5K run/walk event will put you smack in the middle of nature as you run the rows and climb the hills around our orchards. You’ll be dodging through our apple rows, side-stepping through our strawberry fields & dashing along our corn rows. As you push yourself through our 3.1 mile course, you’ll also be raising money & awareness for childhood cancer research. Last year, we raised over $2,000 for CureSearch who’s funding goes directly to finding a cure for children’s cancer. We’re hoping to double the donated amount in 2016!
We’re going to have some fun too! We’re challenging all runners to flaunt a tutu or skirt during the run! For every person that wears a tutu or skirt, Stokes Homestead Farm Market will donate an extra $1 per person to CureSearch. 75% off all proceeds from the race will be donated to CureSearch!
There will be an after-party once you’ve completed the race with food & drinks & music!
Our 5K is not a timed, competitive event. We will have a clock running so you may gauge your time. However, we will not be using chip timing.
To add a little color and fun to this event, we’re donating an extra $1.00 to CureSearch for every person who wears a tutu or skirt during the 5K!
If you would like to pre-order your tutu for the day of the race, e-mail [email protected] Cost is $12.00 and part of the proceeds will be donated to childhood cancer research. A local woman who designs tutus will customize your tutu (for kids & adults) with the color you want and the correct size. Marnie (Our Tutu Creator) will give you all the details on the ordering process. You can pick the tutus up during packet pick-ups the day before the race (September 16th) between 3pm – 6pm or the morning of the race.
Marnie will also be bringing extra tutus to the event to sell before the race begins. Cash or Local checks only please.
There will be an after-party on the lawn of the farm Market directly after the race. All participants will get a free pancake brunch and drinks. Each participant will receive a ticket for brunch in their goody bag. This ticket must be presented in order to get your meal after the race. Participant families are welcome to the after-party and will need to pay an additional $3.00 fee for brunch if they wish to eat. This can be purchased when you pick up your packet the day before or the day-of the race. This is not a timed race event. Every participant will receive a goody bag & a medal!
