It's a race like no other!  No asphalt! No pavement!
The Cheshire Land Trust presents the 2nd Annual Ives Farm Tractor Trot 5K on Saturday, October 28th, at 10 a.m. Runners and walkers are welcome! The unique course is set on a working farm.  It is beautiful.  You'll traverse woodlands, circle planting and hay fields, and run alongside the Quinnipiac River on trails and farm paths. The course begins and ends at the farm's iconic red timber-frame barn.

A live band, food, an awards ceremony, festivities and conservation / environment expo await the runners at the finish.

It's a challenging race (no whining!), but it's fun!  Many participants (and their fans) wear costumes. There are surprises in the woods (good ones!), and you are also encouraged to bring cowbells and horns!    

Day of race walk-ups are welcome!   (TT5K shirt guaranteed only for online registration up to 10/15/17)


Awards:  Male: 1,2, 3  Female: 1, 2, 3   then Oldest, Youngest, Best Costume, Entrant coming from farthest away in state (or world), and then ... "Bibs All In" have some fantabulous prizes, too!  Yay!

Consider a tax-deductible donation to the Cheshire Land Trust along with your registration.  Better yet, become a member of CLT, a local non-profit 501(c)3 corporation funded entirely by donor contributions.  CLT's mission includes the preservation of Cheshire's natural resources and unique historic and scenic sites; the promotion of scientific study of, and education about, local natural resources; and the acquisition of property for the benefit of the public for conservation, educational, scientific, and recreational purposes.

PARKING INFORMATION:  Volunteers will direct cars to parking on the east, "farmstand", side of Cheshire Street.  Feel free to walk, carpool or bike to the farm as well. 


Our post-event party includes a fantastic band, a conservation expo, delicious food and the awards ceremony.  Prizes go the first three male and first three female finishers as well as a prize for youngest finisher and "most seasoned" (over 70) finisher.


The course is a challenge (no whining!), but it's fun and beautiful with woodland, pasture, planting fields and river scenery.
