Run Through the Countryside at Tryon Farm




Tryon Farm, 60 miles from Chicago, in Michigan City, Indiana, is putting on their first annual healthy, happy 10K Trail Run, May 12. Runners will see expanses of May apples and marsh marigolds as they race through the fields, woods and creeks of northern Indiana.

The race will traverse a six-mile course at Tryon, winding through the environmentally friendly neighborhood of contemporary houses. Participants will not only see the farm as spring arrives, but enjoy a pig roast celebration (veggie option), great tunes and a bonfire in the middle meadow at the farm at sunset. Lake Michigan beaches are just a mile away.

Registration is at 9 a.m., with 10K and 50K races at 10 a.m. and a kid’s race at 11 a.m. Registration includes food, beer, drinks and apparel. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Tryon Farm Institute, to support sustainable land use initiatives.
