Living History Farms

Join us for the second annual Living History Farms Kids Trail Run! Our 5k race or 1 mile Fun Run are perfect for both competitive and non-competitive runners, ages 12 and under of all ability levels. Get active as you run through 300 years of Iowa agricultural history. Push yourself to achieve your fastest speed in our 5k Race or tackle some fun history-themed challenges on the course of our 1 mile Fun Run. Top finishers will receive awards (and prizes such as a Family Membership!) and we’ll have food and fun activities for all guests. After the race, take a tour of our historic farms and town sites with your family.
