Come out and enjoy these scenic 5k/10k cross country courses around the historic property. The farm sits in the middle of the Chancellorsville battlefield and Wilderness battlefield.  The very site where Stonewall Jackson’s arm was amputated sits on the farm itself!  The vineyard has a wide array of wildlife to check out, from turkeys and ducks to horses, donkeys and llamas.  Feel free to bring your fishing rod and enjoy your wine by the pond while you fish (catch and release please).

Walkers are welcome to attend this event.  Strollers are welcome, but course may not be suitable for the average stroller.
