Dairy Discovery Harvest Run- 5K & Kids Fun Run

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have cancelled the Harvest 5K & Fun Run on October 30th. We are so sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Runners who have already signed up for the 5K or Fun Run can receive a full refund or donate their registration fee to the Dairy Discovery Program. By donating your registration fee you are helping Dairy Discovery provide a personal connection to your food. 

Here Are Your Options:

Your registration fee will be donated to the Dairy Discovery Program. Dairy Discovery provides a personal connection to your food. As farms continue to disappear, the need for consumers to understand how their food is produced is growing.  Dairy Discovery is committed to educating the West Michigan community about the integrity of production practices and benefits of technology use in the dairy industry.  The story of dairy is told through exposure to daily life on a large and modern farm, engaging visitors in interactive and enjoyable experiences at Swisslane Farms.




We understand. We hope you can join us next time.

We are Hoofin' it for Dairy Discovery, a nonprofit focused on providing a personal connection to your food.  We are teaching the truth in agriculture and healthy nutrition and no better way to teach about health and nutrition then by getting people to moo've their dairy airs.

Join us on October 30th for races through our dairy farm  and local roads.  There will be both a 5k and kids fun run option.  5k will begin at 9:00am, with staggered starts, to help avoid crowding.  This race is open to all ages but asked that they are able to complete within 1 hour.  The kids fun run will begin at 10:00am and is 1/2 mile run for kids up through 12 years old.  We are grateful to have Epic Timing here to assist in the packets and timing of both races. Not only will you have a chance to compete with other runners again, but you will also get the best prize of all at the end.  Healthy, nutritional chocolate milk to refuel your body after a hearty race, along with other amazing snacks.
