Patterson Farm to hold Pumpkin Dash adventure run

MOUNT ULLA – Patterson Farm will host its first adventure run this weekend with the proceeds benefiting the Rowan County United Way.
Organizers ask if you’re tough enough to be a farmer?
The mud trail run is 3.8 miles taking participants through farmland, vineyards, a corn maze and other unique farm obstacles. The event takes place Saturday at the farm, located at 10390 Caldwell Road, Mount Ulla. The race begins at 9 a.m. with an individuals and team race.
“We thought it would be a fun setting, a fun family type of event,” said Michelle Patterson, co-owner of Patterson Farm Inc.
Someone suggested the farm host an adventure run and Patterson said she heard about other farms hosting similar events.
There will also be a half mile kids “Little Farm Hands” race for children five years old to 12 years old.
The entry fees are $30 for individuals paid before Tuesday and $35 after Tuesday. The cost for a four-person team before Tuesday is $120 and $140 after Tuesday. The cost for a two-person team is $60 before Tuesday and $70 after Tuesday.
The cost for the children’s fun run is $10 before and after Tuesday’s deadline.
Interested participants can register online at www.sportoften.com. A printable race brochure is available at www.salisburyrowanrunngers.org. Those interested may also register from 7 a.m.-8:30 a.m. for individuals and 7 a.m.-9:30 a.m. for teams.
The individual’s race begins at 9 a.m., the team race begins at 10 a.m., the children’s fun run begins at 11 a.m. and awards will be presented at 11:30 a.m.
Awards will be given to the top male and female in each age group and the top overall four-person and two-person teams for both male and female and co-ed.
There will be a key valet available for race participants.
All pre-registered participants will receive a dri-fit commemorative T-shirt and race day participants will receive a T-shirt on a first come, first served basis.
After the race there will be a host of activities including the Patterson Farm Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze, which are free to all race participants. There will also be hayrides and playtime at Pappaw Carl’s Playground.
