    Hello, Can you tell me why the event is downtown this year instead of Dull’s Tree Farm like it has been the last several years? Dull’s had a great atmosphere and it really felt like a celebration of fall. Entrance to the farm and access to the activities afterward was an added bonus. I’m very disappointed with the change and probably won’t attend because of the environment.

    Hi there. Thanks for reaching out about this. Unfortunately there has been a change of layout at the Dull's Tree Farm this fall and would have prevented the 5k run from taking place. The event organiser looked elsewhere for other farms but ultimately decided that the downtown location would be the best place to accommodate the runners this year! For any further enquiries please contact our customer support who will help you out with anything - [email protected] Many thanks! :)
