Runners and cheering race fans alike, come join the fun! The Farm to Farm Ultra Run will start and finish at Wolfe’s Neck Farm for this out-and-back course.
The Farm To Farm Ultra Run is a long-distance, road-running event in Freeport and Brunswick, Maine and consists of a 25K, 50K, 50 Mile, 50 Mile Relay, 1K Kids Run, and cookout. Farm to Farm is a nonprofit event owned by the Maine Track Club and organized in partnership with the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust and Wolfe’s Neck Farm.
