The Inaugural Farmland 5K European Style XC Challenge is Traverse City's non-paved, running event in the spirit of European style cross country at it's best!
Enjoy the Challenge...the challenge of running on grass or snow, wooded dirt trails and farmland running terrain. Just like in the original days of running, before paved roads and concrete sidewalks. You'll run on a dedicated cross country course over rolling farmland on the hills east of Traverse City.
