Shining Hope Farms 5k/10k Salute Trail Run

Aug 16, 2021 | News

Join us for our Inaugural Shining Hope Farms 5k/10k Salute Trail Run at our Conover farm September 11th, 2021. We will be honoring veterans, first responders, law enforcement, and those we lost on 9/11.

Come enjoy the beautiful 5 miles of trails on our sprawling 120 acre farm just north of Charlotte. You can choose our 5k or 10k trail to walk or run. Both will be chip-timed, and we will have awards ceremony at the end of the race.

Registration includes a t-shirt, and you are welcome to stay once you cross the finish line for food, drinks, and live music! Shining Hope Farms 5k and 10k Trail Run is supporting our veterans’ program Saddles and Salutes at our Catawba County location in Conover, NC. Participants will also have the option to crowd fund sponsor a service member to enroll and attend our Saddles and Salutes program.
