Team up with your barn mates or running buddies and show up to the 5K in the best costumes. 

 Fundraising Challenge

Honors go to the team with the largest fundraising total at 8:05 a.m. on race day. Keep an eye on the top team fundraisers here.

All proceeds from the Fundraising Challenge will directly benefit EAF's mission of assisting horse people in times of crisis.
