Grimes Farm Run, 2011 edition!

Time to pull out the running shoes once again! The Annual Grimes Farm run, the 2011 edition, is coming up soon!

This year’s run will take place on Saturday, 9 July. Runner check-in begins at 7:30 a.m., with the Run itself scheduled to begin at 8:00. This year will feature the usual array of cross-country runs:

  • 5K — This is the same trail you have known and loved! It includes the killer hill taking you to one of the highest points in the county. You will traverse along Linn Creek through woodlands, cross a wetland, and finish in the prairie in full bloom. Grass with some asphalt trail.
  • 8K — The trail includes the entire 5K with a very rustic extension taking you on a deer trail along the undeveloped side of Linn Creek. Grassy/dirt trail.
  • 1.6 Mile — This route takes you through a woodland, along Linn Creek and up the Big Hill. You will finish by passing over the covered bridge (yes, we have them in Marshall County, too!) and crossing the finish line at the picnic shelter.
  • Kids’ Races — Kids races begin about 9:00 and go about 100 yards. Ribbons for all!
  • Teams — Register your group of 3 together. You will still be considered as an individual, too. Overall Males, Overall Females, Male Oldies (50+), Female Oldies (50+), Mixed Buddies, Fastest Family, Fastest Corporate.

Registration is fast and easy at

All proceeds will go to the Grimes Farm Nature Center Fund.  Any questions?….just leave us a note in the comments.

We hope to see you there!
