IMG_5947The Oxtrot is a very unique rural trail race on Tillers’ 430 acre farm in Scotts, MI just outside of Kalamazoo/Portage. Runners will traverse rolling pastures and hayfields, hard wood stands, wetlands, fence rows, and historic farmsteads. Tillers blacksmith John Sarge has hand forged Oxtrot medals for the first place finishers in each division.

There will be three races with three different prices. The 3.5 mile run (now only $20 entry fee), a 7 mile run ($30), and a 14 mile run ($40). Prices will go up closer to the time of the event. All finishers will receive their picture taken with one of our oxen. Live music and chili follow the race.

All proceeds go toward Tillers International’s agricultural development work with smallholder community’s abroad.
