As runners cross the finish line of the Kids Run The Farm and the 5 mile race, we will be giving each of them one “Farm Bucks” bill. The kids will get a $2 Farm Bucks bill and the 5 mile race finishers will get a $5 Farm Bucks bill.
These Farm Bucks can be used like real dollars (on race day) at the Muscoot Farmers Market right near the finish area of the race. Our intent is to encourage runners to check the farmer’s produce and products, all from farms within 150 miles of Muscoot.
If you spend the Farm Bucks at a booth in the market, at the end of the market the farmer will give them to us and we will exchange them for cash (the kind the bank will accept any day). If you happen to buy more than $5 worth at the market, that is wonderful. If you want to keep the Farm Bucks as a souvenir that is OK too. Note the farmers will only accept them on race day.
We hope you find something you like at the farmer’s market and return other Sundays from May – October when they come to Muscoot.
See you at the Farm!
