The 5th annual 5k trail race will be held at Butler's Orchard on Saturday, November 19 at 10:30am (followed by a family fun run). Join us for a great walk / run through the orchard as we help raise money for Campus Life! The 5k course has a little bit of everything for every age: Gravel farm roads, beautiful scenery, rolling hills, a section through the woods...this is a unique opportunity to run a safe, family-friendly trail race through Butler's Orchard's amazing property. Don't miss out! Bring the entire family! All 5k participants will receive a long sleeve shirt and race packet. Prizes will be awarded based on gender and age specific brackets.

Immediately following the 5k race, we will line up kids and families for the FREE family / kids fun run. The "course" is about a quarter mile and is suitable for all ages. We would love for you to join us as a family for this memorable event!

And stay after the race for Butler's Orchard Christmas Open House. Hot apple cider, homemade pies, Christmas ornaments, Christmas trees and free things for the kids and family to enjoy! Start (or continue) a Thanksgiving / Christmas tradition with Campus Life and Butler's Orchard today!

  • Register
  • Train and get in shape! (totally optional)

No, not at all! Some folks really like to run hard and compete - others like to just have a good time (walking this "race" is absolutely okay). Our goal is for you to have a great experience at this event...so everybody is encouraged to sign up and do their best!

So what's stopping you? Go ahead and Register you and your family today!
