ABOUT THE FORT FARM CHALLENGE:
We will be combining one part challenge, one part competition and several parts of zany fun! Open to ages 6 to 100 the Family Farmathlon and Ultimate Team Challenge will test children and adults physically and mentally, combining a run, bike and obstacle course with a few surprise adventures in between. Participants are encouraged to dress for a mess, because with any farm chore you may get dirty and wet!
1. FAMILY FARMATHLON:
The age-appropriate distances, combined with the entertaining events will attract adults, children and families for a day at the farm, while raising money for children in our community! The bicycle portion of this farm style triathlon will use authentic tractor trails around working farm fields, while the run will take place around a scenic farm setting. The unique and fun obstacle course will be at the center of the action. And, to make sure we keep the “fun & adventure” in the Farmathlon, this event will not be timed. All participating children will receive a medal. New this year we will allow parents to participate with their kids. Try to keep up mom and dad!
