Are you looking for something different? Well, this is not your typical 5K!

The Free Range Run/Walk at Stratford Ecological Center will wind through field and forest and offer vistas of pasture, prairie meadows, pond, streams, farm animals, woodland trails, and cropland. If you're familiar with our immensely popular Fantastic Frigid 5K Series that takes place at Stratford in January, this race is the summer equivalent! In addition to the 5K, we are also offering a FREE 100m kids run (taking place 15 minutes before the 5K) for any of the kiddos who are interested in getting in on the racing action. Join us in July to explore the Stratford trails and see all of the beauty and shade that they provide in the summertime!

Referral Program

We want you to tell your friends about the Free Range Run, so we're providing you with a way to earn refunds. 

When you register, you'll be given a specific referral link to provide your friends. If you do that (why wouldn't you?!?), as soon as the third person uses it to sign up, you get $5 of your registration fee back! When the fourth person uses it to sign up, that's another $5 back, and so on until you, the ROCK STAR, have earned your entire registration fee back!!!

Good for all registrations, at any time, but they must use your referral link. We will not retroactively apply referral links to existing registrations. All refunds will be processed to the credit card utilized for the initial transaction.
