5th Annual Care Farm Challenge

Every Summer, we host our annual Care Farm challenge on the last Saturday of July. This year we are so excited to offer the 5th Annual Care Farm Challenge on July 28th.

The challenge is a farm style obstacle race styled after the Spartan Race and adapted for our friends with special needs. Each year it takes place on gorgeous Centennial Farm located in west valley. Our Care Farm participants work for months to build an exciting course where athletes will face creek crossings, Care farm challenge banner logoclimbing obstacles, and many other challenges to reach the finish. We have a reliable team of volunteers who are placed throughout the course to lend a helping hand when needed, and make sure everyone gets through safely. As always, we wrap up the event with a delicious BBQ lunch for the participants, visitors and spectators. The event is open to the public and free for all participants thanks to many generous donors in our community.

Each spring we participate in Flathead Gives, an online giving campaign designed to support the fundraising efforts of local non profit organizations in the Flathead Valley. The majority of the funds we use each year to put on the Care Farm Challenge are raised during this event. This year, between 6PM on May 3, and 9PM on May 4, please click HERE to donate online to support the Care Farm Challenge. We rely upon this support to keep our event free. And THANK YOU!

Each participant is required to fill out a registration form. We ask that you return your form by July 10th so we can have a general idea of attendance. There will also be registration forms available at the race if you can’t get one in ahead of time. You can download a registration form HERE.
