Fall Farm Fun

Our fall season transforms our farm into a fun farm. We have 2 corn mazes, a hay maze, wagon rides, a large play area, a pick your own pumpkins patch and much more. Every registered runner will get two family farm fun passes. One for themselves (your bib number) and one for a guest.


Local Farm Food

The farm staff has something special planned for the runners.  More details as we get closer to the race date.


Parking

There will be volunteers guiding you in the parking areas. Please park in the spot that they assign you. The road is well traveled so if you park on the shoulder you will need to be completely off the road.


Restrooms

There are flush toilets and portajohns available in the fun farm.
