Farm to School Trail Run and Wellness Fair – October 8, 2017

Sep 23, 2017 | Events, Support Kimberton

We invite you to participate in our Fifth Annual Farm to School Trail Run & Wellness Fair, on Sunday October 8th, 2017. This year, we are focused on ‘Sustainability’ within the community and on campus.

The annual event will take place on Kimberton Waldorf School’s breathtaking 430 acre campus, located at 410 West Seven Stars Road, Phoenixville, PA.

Our improved French Creek Conservation Trail is a single loop 5k, taking you across protected fields and through beautiful hardwood forests, over dirt trails and tributaries, and along the peaceful French Creek. We will also offer an exciting 10k course and relaxing 5k Nature Walk.

There is something for the whole family to enjoy, including a Wellness Fair with vendors, free delicious lunch for registrants, a free Kids Fun Run, children’s activities, and free post-race massages. We will also have adoptable pets available, provided by Noah’s Ark Rescue Project and Sanctuary. There will be awards and cash prizes, and Long-sleeve T-shirts for all pre-registrants. This refreshing French Creek activity and Wellness Fair brings together outdoor enthusiasts of all ages, and supports our sustainable efforts on campus to promote environmental and clean water stewardship. Our campus fields & farmlands are herbicide & pesticide free, and we offer Organic lunches to our students. The PA Audubon has recognized our campus as a Certified Bird Habitat. Our students also participate in a composting program.

The entire Wellness Fair & Runs/Walk begins at 8:30 am in the HS Gym, which is when the Trail Runs & Walk Registration begins. The Free Kid’s Fun Run is at 9 am on the school Track, the 5k/10k Trail Runs & 5k Nature Walk begin at 10 am, with a ‘warm-up’ at the starting line by Iron Cross Athletics around 9:45 am. Children’s activities are from 10-11:30 am, in the HS Gym (in the Painting room, next to the KWS booth). Organic lunch begins around 10:45 am, we’ll have awards & raffles, and the Event informally ends around 12 pm.

Kneehigh Farm will have a Mini-Farmer’s Market with yummy veggies for sale, and a raffle basket with veggies & GC!

L.L. Bean Outdoor Discovery Schools will be set up right next to ‘adorable adoptable animals’, playing games with excited children!

Green Mountain Energy will also be a vendor at our Wellness Fair.
