Farm Run

Farm Run 2018 is in the books! We’ll see you for Farm Run 2019 on Sunday, Dec. 15th 2019.

Runners, walkers and nature-lovers of all types are invited to participate in PLC’s first annual Farm Run presented by Salem Smiles. Start at the barn and run through the farm past scenic vistas and animals on this combination trail/grass/concrete 5k course. Plus: a 1-mile run/walk  and 200 yard’s kid’s dash. Something for everyone!

All runners can enjoy a beer from Foothills Brewing (for those over 21) or hot chocolate from Coffee Park as well as  s’mores around the fire pit after the race.

In early 2018, an agreement was made which will allow PLC to buy the development rights of 92 of the 213 acres that make up what many know as “The Farm”– Crossnore School & Children’s Home along Reynolda Road. The agreement will protect the land from development by what’s known as a conservation easement. Crossnore will still own the land, but the agreement will keep intact a tract of land that has generated memories for scores of children for more than a century.

Registration includes long sleeve T-shirt. Proceeds from the event will support Piedmont Land Conservancy annual operating expenses.

Awards for the 5K will be provided by The North Face! All kids in the Kids Dash will also receive a water bottle courtesy of The North Face.
