Run or walk on the paths of beautiful Wildseed Farms, including a stretch along the Pedernales River. The 5k loop winds along flat, well maintained, very gentle, non-technical dirt trail through the fields of Wildseed Farms, along with a scenic stretch beside the Pedernales River. The 10k will cover the loop twice. As a race participant, you’ll get to see parts of the farm that are not open to the general public.
