Runners and walkers will gather at the Visitor Barn before breakfast on Sunday morning before departing on a winding course through the lush Sugar Hill State Forest, ending with a dash through the sanctuary grounds. Greet rescued pigs, cows, chickens, and other Farm Sanctuary friends as you head toward the finish line.

Runners and walkers of all ages and abilities are welcome to join in! The Plant-Powered 5K run/walk is only open to registered Hoe Down guests. In order to participate, register today.
