Farm 5K and Fun Run

Attention all 5k fiends and fanatics: Looking for something more organic than the Color Run or more local than the Dirty Dash? Check out Rio Grande Community Farm Fall Fest 5k. Beginning Saturday at 8am, runners, rookie and veteran, will take off through Los Poblanos Open Space farm (1701 Montano NW), complete with beautiful views and wildlife sightings. The trail is almost entirely straight-ahead, and the venue describes it as “a very fast course that will encourage the novice and keep the quick on their toes.” A 1-mile kid's run, a corn labyrinth, food trucks and several opportunities for the family to learn about creatures and crops are included in the event. All participants also receive admission for a family of four to the RGCF Fall Fest on October 26, as well as a RGCF tote—and who couldn't use another tote bag? Tickets are $30 for adults, $10 for children. Proceeds go to Rio Grande Community Farm which provides produce for Albuquerque Public Schools, donates to shelters and maintains a wildlife habitat and a two acre community garden.
