Imagine running a 5K that begins and ends at a lavender farm! Nestled in the Northeast Kingdom is a beautiful farm that boasts of lavender, sunflowers, vegetables, herbs and much more! The views from the farm are nearly 360 degrees and absolutely amazing.
This is a family event, all ages are welcome, walkers and runners. (no dogs please)
The course is located at the tip of Vermont, along the Canadian border on family farmland. This course includes rolling hills, fields, dirt roads, and a little bit of tarmac. We have been told by some past participants, that this is a challenging course!
Snacks and water provided for participants, before the race. We will have Swag Bags for all the runners.

Eden Specialty Ciders will be on site with samples of their quality ciders! Pick your favorites, to purchase and bring home.

Our 1st Annual Mac n Cheese Fest will be goin on from 12-3. Check out the Calendar at Lavender Essentials for more details about the Mac n Cheese Fest!

After the race, walk the lavender labyrinth, stroll around the lavender farm, check out the birch tree circle, smell the flowers, read the informational placards, and stop by the gift shop for lavender specialties. There is lots to see and do after the race, so plan to stay awhile. This is a gorgeous farm and course, be sure to bring a camera!
Finisher prizes and door prizes for participants.

Lavender Essentials is a participant of Vermont's Open Farm Week. Open Farm Week is in it's 8th Annual year, and is held from August 7th - 14th, 2022. During the 2022 Vermont Open Farm Week, you can meet the farmers, plants, and animals that bring your favorite high-quality Vermont products to your plate. Farmers are encouraged to create new events during this week, welcoming and educating guests about their farm. Lavender Essentials created a 5k, encouraging wellness and agritourism. Open Farm Week is the perfect time to visit many of the participating farms all around Vermont.
The greatest part about Open Farm Week is that every farm is unique. Milk a cow and harvest a carrot at one farm, sit on a tractor and take in the smell of freshly cut hay at another and then head over to another for woodfired pizza night and a garden tour. Get out, and meet some of the special families that are at the heart of agriculture in Vermont. See you at the farm!
