Farmland 5K: Dec 3

The 5th annual Farmland 5K is December 3rd, 2016 at Noon!  As the saying goes... "There's no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes!"  

Run a 5K or ride the "Farmland Free for All", and use a mountain bike, fat bike, cross bike or a single speed over a 12 mile 6-loop course. Or you can do both at a combo price! Please note, the 2016 event is capped to 475 (It's kinda popular!)

Both events on mowed turf grass on rolling farmland just East of Traverse City. Followed by complimentary great food, beer, hot chocolate and a festive awards ceremony! And $2 of the run entry fee supports the Taste the Local Difference, and $2 of the bike fee supports Norte Youth Cycling!
