The Rooted Acoustic Barn Raising 5.5K & 1 Mile Kids Dash
Sunday, August 29, 2021 at 8AM
The Rooted Acoustic Barn Raising 5.5K & 1M Kids Dash is an exciting opportunity for our community to come together to enjoy physical activity and embrace the outdoors! This is the 3rd annual race and will be held entirely within the 1,388 acres of the Greene Valley Forest Preserve. THAT'S why it is a 5.5K! The Start & Finish is in front of the barn.
The 175-year-old, 14,000-square-feet Greene Barn is located in the Greene Valley Forest Preserve at the corner of Hobson and Greene Roads in Naperville. Proceeds from this race will benefit The Greene Barn. The race is an effort to build awareness for this striking cultural treasure and its potential to be open to the public on an on-going basis.
The Forest Preserve District of DuPage County is strictly adhering to any COVID restrictions necessary to keep all of us healthy and safe. The race is at the end of August and we all remain hopeful that we will be able to share the morning together in one of the most beautiful settings along the East Branch of the DuPage River, The Greene Barn.
