UP AND RUNNING: PROUDLY SUPPORTING THE FARMLAND 5K AND FREE-FOR-ALL

We work hard to make businesses and organizations more efficient, more sustainable, and environmentally friendly. The health and vitality of the planet are no different from the active lifestyle we live away from our projects, as well. We take pride in living the message of a better world by promoting local events and building relationships that reflect our vision. 

On December 2, runners and cyclists from all over the region will be back in action at the Farmland 5k and Free-For-All at Rasho Farm near Courtade Elementary. The race draws healthy and active people looking to brave whatever weather is on offer, which has ranged from several inches of snow to brilliantly sunny skies and a warm breeze over the past few years. 

The 5k course is a classic, old-world style cross country race with a farm twist. Wind through the trees, hope over the hale bales and enjoy the cheers of spectators as you navigate a rolling, hilly and fun course. From local speedsters to moms pushing strollers, it's a challenge for everyone, of all abilities! 

There's also a bike race after the runners are finished that has become a bit of a landmark end to the season for locals. Riders do as many laps as they can in 60 minutes, and choosing the right bike is key. That's the Free-For-All part; you'll see mountain bikes, cyclocross bikes, fat bikes, singlespeeds, and even a few cruisers all vying for the fastest time! For the truly hearty athletes, there's even a prize for the best run and bike times combined, with the overall winners taking prizes and bragging rights for a full year. 

The race donates $2 per entry to Taste The Local Difference, a very worthy initiative from the Groundworks Center. They also give money to our good friends at Norte Youth Cycling, Traverse City's local organization to encourage cycling amongst kids and families.
