Registration is on for Barnyard Dash 5K at Blackberry Farm on April 28

Blackberry Farm is welcoming runners, walkers and athletes of all abilities to the Barnyard Dash 5K on Saturday, April 28, beginning at 8:30 a.m.

Run on a USTAF-certified course, the race features 14 age divisions for both men and women racers ages 10 and up. Those who register by April 19 will enjoy the early bird rate of $29 and are guaranteed a Dri-Fit race T-shirt. The early-bird rate extends through April 22; the fee increases o $34 after that. On-site registration is also available the day of the event.

This run/walk is set amid the natural beauty of Blackberry Farm on a course that circles picturesque Lake Gregory and includes portions of the Virgil Gilman Trail, traversing historic Blackberry Farm and alternating between trails of asphalt and limestone screenings. Chip timing is utilized to assure greatest accuracy.

Refreshments are served at the finish line. Each participant also receives a complimentary beer, and ample amounts of bacon samples will be available for taste tastings.

Families with younger children (ages 5 and up) are encouraged to sign up for the Pig Pen 1-Miler that begins at 9:45 a.m. Registration is $15 per entrant. All runners who register for the Barnyard Dash 5K may also participate in the Pig Pen run/walk for no additional charge.

The top three finishers (male and female) in each age division will be awarded a colorful, handcrafted medallion to commemorate their achievement. All non-placing runners will receive a race ribbon.
