Gentle Giants Draft Horse Rescue
600 Beetz Road

Come experience a race like no other! Runners will wind their way throughout our 300 acre farm with over 120+ draft horses ready to run alongside you! Run through wooded forest trails and out onto grass and gravel pathways that will lead you to an incredible view of the entire farm.

Not only will you experience running alongside massive draft horses, you’ll also get a free beer ticket for a cold brew from the Union Craft Brewing Beer Tent at the end of the race AND the opportunity to meet our 20.1 hand tall viral sensation, Phantom! He'll be participating in our drill team and making appearances for photos at the beer tent throughout the day.

Course Information:

The trail course meanders throughout the rescue's 300 acre farm, giving runners spectacular views of the undulating pastures and all of our draft horses. The course makes use of all types of terrain - across our rolling hills, through our woodlots and along the creek bottom. You will not find a prettier race course. Our drill team and mounted archers will be greeting runners by the start line and performing at 12:00pm.

Please try to arrive early to get the best parking spot, grab your packet, sign your waiver and get your swag bag. Race and Riding Demonstrations will be held rain or shine (though we’d really prefer shine!). Should we have rain that causes areas of the course(s) to become too muddy or slick, we will divert to a backup route that still meets the 1 mile, 5k, and 10k requirements.
