SOMERS, N.Y. -- Muscoot Farm will host the sixth annual Run the Farm and Kids Run the Farm trail races on Sunday, Oct. 25.
Online registration is currently open. Registration will close in mid-October or earlier if the event fills up.
Organizers expect over 800 total registrants for the three races based on past years.
Run the Farm is made up of three races geared toward two yonger age groups and one longer race for older runners:
- 6 years and under (0.6 miles).
7-12 years (1.1 miles).
5-mile race (this is a much harder and longer run geared for the 13-and-older crowd, but kids 12 and under can register and run.)
The kids races will be followed by the 5-mile Run the Farm trail race that takes the runners deep into the 777 forested acres of Muscoot Farm.
The trail includes meadows, stone walls, a cliffside scramble and Godino’s Grind -- a hill at the 3-mile mark that tests the quads of even the fittest runners.
The race closes with a final sprint in the farmyard past the cows, sheep, pigs, horses and goats to end next to the finish-line ducks.
Kids races start at 8:30 a.m. sharp. The 5-mile race starts at 9:30 a.m. and will not begin until the kids races are complete.
Parking is across Route 100 from the farm. Carpooling is encouraged.
