Run The Farm Memphis is a new 10K and 5K cross-country styled "off-road" race designed to encourage athletes and nature lovers to enjoy the many terrains found on a working farm at Agricenter International in Memphis, TN. The Agricenter, a non-profit organization dedicated to the future of agriculture, is part of more than 4,000 acres of conserved land located in Shelby County, TN.

Run The Farm is for all ages. The course passes through forest, dirt, graveled, and paved roads surrounding Agricenter's multi-functioning campus. 10K participants will enjoy running/walking throughout the entire Agricenter farm and research areas as well as our Show Place Arena. 5K participants will enjoy running/walking through farmland, the Maze and Agricenter's Farmers Market great red barn!

The race brings awareness to the multiple educational programs offered at the Agricenter free of charge. More than 4,000 students age Pre-K through adult attended one of the programs just last year.

An after-party will include BBQ pizza and sliders, beverages and live music.Unique awards will be given to the top three winners in each age category, including Overall, Master Award and Grand Master Award, for each run. Each participant will receive a t-shirt and goody bag.

All proceeds will benefit the educational programs at Agricenter.
