Inaugural 5K Trail Run for Thorncroft deemed a success!
Thursday, August 30th was a great day for Thorncroft as we launched our first 5K Trail Run, Walk and Ride on the grounds of the Farm. 150 people registered to participate in the event that took them on a tour of the 70 acres of our pastures and fields. The participants were pleased with how well organized the event was, and the runners were surprisingly challenged by the course.
The finish led participants through the barn to meet the horses, and out to the grazing area near the North arena where they were treated to a beer (if they were over 21) which was graciously donated by Stable 12 Brewery in Phoenixville. Rita’s Water Ice and Dos Gringos Mexican Kitchen were on hand to provide delicious treats for all who attended the event. As Martin M. a participant shared with us post-race, “The inaugural Thorncroft trail run was a distinct success! The local event calendar is crowded with mediocre 5K outings, all touting a "worthy" cause, with a stable of devoted supporters. I'd like to thank Thorncroft for producing an event worthy of a red-letter day on my calendar for 2019!” We look forward to hosting the second annual 5K next year!
