IMG_6012Come experience an entirely unique trail race at our 430 acre farm in Scotts, MI, just 12 miles from downtown Kalamazoo. Runners will traverse rolling pasture and hay fields, hard wood stands, wetlands, fence rows, a branch of the Portage River, and historic farmsteads.  They’ll also mingle with our Milking Shorthorn cattle, draft horses and oxen.

All proceeds from this event will go to support Tillers’ important agricultural development work overseas.

Runners can choose to complete one of three races: 3.5 miles ($20), 7 miles ($30), and 14 miles ($40).
