Entry to Buckelew Farms
Thanks to the Buckelew family, the entry fee into Buckelew Farms is waived so that you may purchase your own pumpkin. All those that are in the park by race time (8:00 a.m.) will not be charged for entry. Those arriving after after 8:00 a.m. will need to pay the entry fee. So it’s simple, arrive early, run a great race (or cheer your favorite racer), have a great time, enjoy crafts and other activities for the entire family!
Due to safety concerns, Buckelew Farms has a no dog policy this year. Please leave Fido at home for the race, we’re sure he’d much rather sleep in than run through the haunted corn maze anyway!
This is a cross country style race though farm fields and uneven terrain. Baby joggers are allowed, but please be aware that some parts of the race may take extra time to navigate while you’re little one is enjoying the view!
