The 8th annual Run the Farm 5 mile trail race and “Kids Run The Farm” trail races are now open for registration. We also have some news about the The Trail Mix Trail Series at the bottom of this note.
Run The Farm will be held Sunday, Oct 22, 2017 with kids races starting at 8:30am.
The two kids races are divided into completely separate events. First is a 1.1 mile run for kids 7-12. This is followed by a 0.6 mile trail run for kids age 6 and under.
Both kids events will be completed before the 5 miler is started at 9:30am.
See race website for more details and logistics information.
We are happy to bring this event back for its eighth year.
We want to thank the fantastic staff at Muscoot Farm
and the Westchester County Parks Department
for having us back at the park.
Runners love the scenic and tough 5 mile course. Kids are challenged with a great taste of the trails at Muscoot Farm in their very own races. The farmers at the market love the energy (and the business!) that the race brings out on one of the final weeks of the outdoor farmer’s market on a crisp October Sunday morning.
Once again ALL finishers
(kids included) will receive “Farm Bucks“
when they cross the finish line. Farm Bucks can be used at the Muscoot Farmer’s Market
on the day of the race to help purchase locally sourced meats, pies, pasta, veggies, fruit, honey, pickles, and dairy products — as well as many other farmer’s market items.
You don’t have to wait for the race to shop at the farmer’s market though — The Muscoot Farmers Market
is open now! Farm market starts in May and lasts through late October every Sunday from 10am-3pm.
