The mission of BarnArts is to engage the local community as both viewers and participants in a year-round performing arts program which supports the existing and developing talents of local adults and children.
The vision of BarnArts is to foster and continuously support a community that views art as essential to social well-being, a community where a thriving arts culture and a thriving rural economy are mutually supportive, where the careers of artist, teacher and farmer are equally valued, and where time is set aside for the pursuit of creativity and shared learning.
The Race Around the Lake specifically supports BarnArts Youth Programming: sponsorship and scholarships for our Summer Youth Theater, sponsorship of the BarnArts Teen Touring Company, and free programs for kids, like the BarnArts Youth Chorale.
Run Apart and Stay Together!
Participation in all races includes our signature Race T-shirt delivered to you - a special Safe Distance Edition design!
12 and Under: $10 (age-based pricing kicks in automatically!)
RACE AROUND THE LAKE Safe-Distance Edition will take place from June 19-28 in Barnard. Runners will clock themselves doing the course during this time frame and post times and photos on line! We will still have T-shirts and sponsors. 5k & 10k routes will be mostly the same route around Silver Lake as other years, but they will start and end in the Barnard Town Hall parking lot. A table will be set up on the front porch of the Barnard Town Hall with maps and info during race days. Trails will be well marked and maintained daily.
Adapted course maps will be posted here soon.
Not in the area but still want to participate? You can elect to do a virtual version and run wherever you are! Run/walk a course of your choice in your area and post times and photos with us during our race days, June 19-28! We will mail you our race T-shirt! Our races are challenging - especially the 10k with the long up hill through the woods and the Tower Rd climb - can you match it in your area?!

RACE AROUND THE LAKE raises money for BarnArts youth programming, primarily our Summer Youth Theater, now in it's 9th Season. These funds allow us to keep our enrollment costs low and offer scholarships to students who need additional assistance. We also are expanding into Arts-in-Education programming and offer a free youth choir experience every fall. Our BarnArts Teen Touring Company creates original youth-focused skits to perform at area schools.
Changes to 5K route:
5K course will begin and end at the Barnard Town Hall and not travel through Silver Lake State Park. To keep the length up to 5K, the Special Edition Course travels longer up hill in the woods with the 10K route, before turning away and descending back towards North Road and the finish.
Changes to 10K route:
10K course will begin and end at the Barnard Town Hall and not travel through Silver Lake State Park. Otherwise, the course is identical to other years.
