We are happy to bring this event back for its third year. Runners loved the scenic and tough 5 mile course. Kids were challenged with a great taste of the trails at Muscoot Farm in their very own race. The farmers at the market loved the energy (and the business!) that the race brought out that 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 produce, pies, pickles, pasta, and potatoes — as well as many other items.

You don’t have to wait for the race to shop there though! The Muscoot Farmers Market is open now through early November every Sunday from 10am-3pm.

We hope you can join us in October for this new trail running tradition!

PS: We also wanted you to know about some other races put on by friends of the Loop: On Labor Day (9/3/12) the Church Tavern Biathlon (7 mile bike/ 4 mile run) returns for its second year in South Salem. A few days after that is the Katonah 5k Road & Trail Race. A week before Run The Farm the 5th annual Paine to Pain trail half marathon will be held. In November the Beachfront Bushwhack in Greenwich is a great 5 mile trail run plus Max’s Mile Kids Run. See links below for information and registration if you are interested.

See you on the trails!
