Third Annual Farm Fun Run in Meredith This Weekend

FARM-FUN-RUN-NOV-2013-FOR-WEB-300x225Runners of all ages and experience levels will be coming together this weekend to participate in a unique event that keeps the sport fun and accessible to everyone, from the novice to the seasoned athlete. Looking to get out and run with friends and family on a picturesque course on a brisk fall day? Moulton Farm in Meredith has just the thing for you!

On Saturday, November 7th, Moulton Farm will be hosting its third annual Farm Fun Run. This popular event takes runners on a unique 5K course that winds around the farm, across fields, on hiking trails along Page Pond, and through part of the farm’s famous corn maze. A special shorter course for children will also be offered.

Moulton-Farm-5K-finish-2014Last year, the Fun Run hosted a wide range of runners. Some people were running their very first five-kilometer run, and some had been running for decades, but they all had fun. Each year so far, the crowds have enjoyed seeing many parents and children running together.

This is a fun event, so there is a minimal fee of $10 per runner to cover costs. The surplus will be donated to a local charity. The organizers will also provide individual running times for people who wish to see their results. And instead of traditional medals, Moulton Farm will once again give away specialized Farm Decor Awards for the top three females and males, as well as for all children in the fun run. Free t-shirts will go to the first 50 registrants.

For more information about the Farm Fun Run, please visit www.moultonfarm.com/moulton-farm-5k-2015. To register in advance, please call 603-279-3915, stop by the farm, or email moultonfarm@metrocast.net. Same-day registration opens at 8:30 am. The Children’s Fun Run starts at 9:30am and the 5k starts at 10am.

Even if you don’t run, this event promises to be a lot of fun! Come and cheer on the runners as they make their way about the farm and head for the finish line!
