Get Your Tails on the Trail 5K Event
Saturday, May 6, 2017 – Check in and late registration begins @ 9 am, race starts @ 10 am
The 2nd Annual Get Your Tails on the Trail 5K will be held on May 6, 2017. This event is presented by Freedom Farm Animal Sanctuary (Freedom Farm) and following rave reviews from last year’s event, we are returning to Fontanel. The 5K course mixes flat paved trails with winding off-road trails and changing elevations. The 5K course is open to individual runners as well as those running or walking with their four legged friends. If you or your pet prefer a shorter stroll, choose the 1 Mile course. The 1 Mile course is entirely on the paved portion of the course and has minimal elevation changes. Strollers and wagons are welcome on the 1 Mile course. Because the 5K trail is off-road and has narrow spaces throughout, traditional strollers may have difficulty. The cost of this race is only $20 but it will increase to $25 after the early bird cut-off at 3:00 pm on May 5, 2017.
All proceeds from this event go directly towards saving cats and dogs in Middle Tennessee. Freedom Farm is a no kill rescue which pulls most of its dogs from high kill shelters. Freedom Farm frequently rescues older cats and dogs often with moderate to severe medical needs. Freedom Farm believes all animals deserve a second chance at life!
The Mansion at Fontanel is the 33,000 square foot crown jewel of what has become a must see attraction when visiting Nashville. In addition to the Mansion, located on site are the Whites Creek Bistro, Cafe Fontanella, Natchez Hills Winery Tasting Room, Stone House Shoppe and Box Office, Prichard’s Distillery, Music City Ziplines, and the Carl Black Chevy Woods Amphitheater. Please check fontanel.com for additional details and operating hours.
