Follow us on Instagram at @cherryhillfarmultra
Event's current local time: 7:17 AM ET
The Cherry Hill Farm Ultra is a 50k race involving 12 (yes, twelve) loops around the Cherry Hill Farm in Gorham Maine. A physical and mental test, but the course is flat and non technical. This will challenge first timers who have never completed a 50k race, while also challenging those more advanced who want to hit their 50k PR. This race will also include a 6 loop 25k option.
Come join us in the first week of September to take on the CHFU!
