The intention of this race is to offer you our beloved runners, with a high intensity race and then let you relax post-race to bask in the beauty that Hardin Farms has to offer in Fall. The course is tough but manageable and allows runners to come back to the finish line without wanting to go straight to bed. We will have several activities after including volleyball, cookout, craft beer, dog races, and bon-fire with camping! Oh and look out for the native Sasquatch as he will try to get you. RUNNERS: Below is the description of the current trails and their distances. Trails are subject to change as I’m currently building new ones!
Pumpkin Patch Race: Ages 12 and below. It is important to us to have children learn about the joys of running in the wild! The trail we be 2 miles long and parents or guardians are required to run with their children if they are 8 and below. We will have adult runners in the front middle and back of the pack. The children will follow flags along the ground.
The trail will finish at the pumpkin patch where all kids are allowed one pumpkin. Once we review all the children that have signed up we will separate them into age groups (TBD) and give awards out based on this. Last year we did a golden pumpkin for the winners.
6 Mile Description: Starts out near the main house and then cuts back downhill to the creek bottom where the race started last year. This trail is complete with a historic run down an old wagon trail that use to be the only way for people to get into Murfreesboro, TN, a couple of creek crossings, a rugged bushwhack, and a sustained climb to the top of a not-so-peaceful hill. After an enjoyable creek run, the race finishes with a scenic run to the homestead finish line where delicious beverages, food, and activities await those in need. 80 percent of this run is trail with (the other 20% on gravel).
13 Mile Description: You first follow the 6 mile run then take a different turn when coming back through Old Statesville Road. The trail then begins a rugged, uphill bushwhack that is both technical, and physically demanding. This portion is an incredible sample of what is gained when you take the path less traveled. After about 300 feet of elevation gain, and multiple rock garden crossings, a trail appears from the ether, and runners are brought to an aid station atop Bent Tree Hill. Bent Tree Hill sits nestled in the woods, cradled in an old stonewall. A brief downhill section leads back down then back up a different portion of the mountain called Rattlesnake Hill. Do not worry about the snakes, as the majority of them are gone this time of year but do pay attention to the rope you must hold onto so that you do not fall off the side of this steep incline. Once on top its back to some new property, which is our favorite part of the run as the trail cuts fast down hill on technical terrain! Towards the end you will enjoy a nice cruise back to the finish line for a strong finish. The 13-mile is no joke so be prepared to navigate, and be challenged.
Dog Race – We love dogs and want you to bring yours to come hang out for the Sasqutch Trot. The dog race takes place in an open field around 2:30pm. Dogs will be held by a volunteer that owners must find. While they are being held owners will walk across the field to finishing line. Dogs will then be released and the first one to finishing line wins some awesome treats!
