Nellie's 5k Frolic

Sunday, August 5, 2018

Nellie is a mythical cow, whom has wandered the grounds of The Nelson Farm for centuries. She loves the changing of seasons, and especially loves Spring time. Spring and Summer bring bounty to support her friends (other local wildlife) and the community. She enjoys frolicking amongst the wildflowers, snacking on herbs and veggies at the Hay Creek Garden and enjoying the refreshing morning dew on the grass.
Frolic through the meadow and the forest as you search for Nellie and her friends. Customize your 5k Frolic, and feel free to walk, run, or push a stroller with a little one. Complete the search for Nellie and her friends by the end of the run, with all the correct answers and you will be entered to win a future Stay at Suncadia. 
Cool down after the race with cool summer treats for all!
