Come out and enjoy this scenic, challenging, hilly 5k/10k around the property.  This is probably our toughest event we do, between a mix of paved and gravel/dirt road.  The views are incredible but so is the muscle burn!  Make no bones about it, you’ll earn that glass of beer.

Walkers and strollers are welcome to attend this event.

 

Virtual Race Option

We now offer a virtual run option for those who cannot make it on race day.  Find more information about our virtual option on our Virtual Races page.

The course is up and down one side of the road, and then up and down the other side. The 10k is two out-and-back sections. Check the course maps page for the elevation gains.
