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 ninth year. We want to thank the fantastic staff at Muscoot Farm and the Westchester County Parks Department for having us back at the park.

Start of 6 & Under Race 2014

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 mid-November every Sunday from 10am-3pm.
