We loved cheering on runners in the Would Rather Be at a Horse Show Virtual 5k/10k, which took place last weekend via Baile Hill Farm in Sutton, MA. The concept: an all-inclusive virtual race that encouraged participants, of all speeds, to get out there and be active during this time of quarantine. There were categories for Fastest, Turtle awards, Dog Awards, and Spirit Awards, with prizes sponsored by New Balance, SmartPak, Purina, Buck Off Cancer and more.
We agreed to help select a winner for the Spirit Award, and today we’re putting it to a reader vote! The top four:
The inaugural “Would Rather Be at a Horse Show Virtual 5k/10k” was such a success that it’s now a series — the next dates are for a “Christmas/Holiday in July” themed race July 17-19 and a “Sports” themed race September 18-20.
Many thanks to Jess Halliday and her crew for helping to keep our community’s spirits up, and keeping us active, during these weird times.
Go Eventing (Someday!)
