“So the trail wines all through the property. Me and Chris Amerman cut these trails and made this course specifically for this event. So it runs all through the property. It’s a 5K course, which is 3.1 miles,” says Daniel Akers, the host of the event.

A portion of the funds collected will help Critter Creek Farm with food and transportation for the rescued animals.
