Want to make a difference? Then lace up your shoes and register for this year’s newest tastiest races: The National Farmer’s Market Association’s “Fresh Food Runs.”
Coordinated for NFMA by Heat Event Race Management of Amesbury MA, the Fresh Food Run agenda features two events for 2013: one in the Spring (May 25) and one in the Fall (October 5). Both races are fundraisers to help extend the scope of NFMA’s important community outreach programs.
Both Fresh Food Run events take place in the bucolic New England countryside. Historic Green Meadows Farm — once the home of General George Patton, and now a multi-faceted local resource for fresh produce and local community networking — couldn’t provide a more picture-perfect background for the kickoff event!
What are you waiting for? The first 100 registrants get an extra surPRIZE in their swag bags. Sign up today and tell your friends.
