  • Overview

    Join us for the second annual Living History Farms Kids Trail Run! Our 5k race or 1 mile Fun Run are perfect for both competitive and non-competitive runners, ages 12 and under of all ability levels. Get active as you run through 300 years of Iowa agricultural history. Push yourself to achieve your fastest speed in our 5k Race or tackle some fun history-themed challenges on the course of our 1 mile Fun Run. Top finishers will receive awards (and prizes such as a Family Membership!) and we’ll have food and fun activities for all guests. After the race, take a tour of our historic farms and town sites with your family.


    Registration opens March 5 at 10am. Included when you sign up: Race registration fee for child age 12 or under, Living History Farms Trail Run t-shirt and swag, free admission to tour Living History Farms for runner and 1 adult guest (over $25 value!). Racers will not be timed, but top finishers in each race will receive awards.

    Adult chaperones can choose to run with their children, but the chaperones will not receive t-shirts/swag.

    Pick up your race packets in Living History Farms’ Visitor Center. A parent or guardian will need to attend packet pick up and will be asked to sign a Waiver and Release of Liability Form for each child participating in the LHF Kid’s Trail Run activities.
