5k Trail Run for Thorncroft

Thu August 30, 2018 Malvern, PA US 19355 Directions
190 Line Road
Malvern, PA US 19355

Start your Labor Day weekend by participating in our inaugural 5K Trail Run for Thorncroft!

Join us, and run, walk, or wheel along our riding paths and through the fields where our horses graze.  Gather at Thorncroft Equestrian Center and complete a 5K trail run, 1 mile walk, or wheel around the accessible paths. Everyone is invited to join us for a post-race gathering to visit the Farm, and enjoy food and beverages offered by Dos Gringos, Rita's Italian Ice, Stable 12 Brewery, and others. 

The 5K race will be timed by Chester County Running Store. The course takes you through the beautiful grounds and pastures of Thorncroft.  You will begin in the front of our facility and will run on pavement, gravel, wood chips, and grass with a little bit of water and mud along the way.  Trail and mile markers will help you find your way.  There is one water station on the course and one at the finish. Participants over the age of 21 are invited to have one free beer following the race courtesy of Stable 12 Brewery.

For the safety of our horses, please leave your dogs and other animals at home.  Service animals are welcome.

The 5K Trail Run for Thorncroft will raise funds for the care of our horses.  They are the unsung heroes in all we do!  These special animals gently welcome and care for riders of all abilities providing a unique and healing experience.  To care for and feed one horse averages over $5,000 per year.  Your support will help provide for hay, feed, blacksmith services, veterinary care, and tack.  Your generosity helps to secure the exceptional horses we need in a therapeutic environment - horses who truly exemplify the greatest qualities of extraordinary teachers.

We hope you will join us for this race and look forward to seeing you on August 30th!
