There is no service fee for online entry. NO REFUNDS or TRANSFERS.

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 concession stand will be serving up some great farm food.  Hamburgers made from the farm’s beef, topped with lettuce, and tomato grown feet from the race course.

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 portajohns near the registration shelter.
