This year’s course has been updated to include parts of our old course with some exciting new features. Our family-friendly, off-road course* leads participants through the diverse autumn landscape of Hawthorne Valley, circling beautiful gardens, traversing the forest, and crossing pastures. Special thanks to the Kinderhook Runners Club, who has generously donated us their time clock for the day.

Race time: 9am

Registration will take place by the School Assembly Hall (330 County Route 21C, Ghent, NY 12075). The first 100 registrants will receive a race t-shirt. After the race, enjoy delicious, wholesome refreshments provided by Hawthorne Valley Farm and Threshold Farm.

Registration Fees: Adult – $25; Youth (11 through 17) – $20; Child, 10 and under – Free* (*Due to the terrain, strollers are prohibited. Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult.)

What is on-farm education at Hawthorne Valley?
At Hawthorne Valley, we believe in engaging a child’s whole being–the intellect, the heart, and the will–in the learning process. We also believe that experiential learning opportunities in the natural world can help children develop greater self-confidence while building community and an understanding of the natural world.

Children in our Place Based Learning programs don’t just learn about farming from textbooks and stories. We seek to immerse children in farm-life by sending them to the gardens to nurture and harvest the plants, to the kitchens to learn how to turn fresh produce into delicious, wholesome meals, to the barns to meet the animals and muck the stalls, and to the streams and forests to play and explore. Through these activities, we’ve seen countless children’s lives positively transformed by their interactions with the natural world and with their peers.

We seek to provide these programs to all children, and your support through the Let’s Moove 5K helps us to provide financial assistance to many children who wouldn’t be able to attend otherwise. Thank you for your support! For more information, please visit our website: http://hawthornevalleyassociation.org/events/lets-moove-5k-walk-run/

Bindlestiff Family Cirkus Matinee * Sunday, March 29 * 3pm

Parker Millsap * Monday, March 30 * 8pm
At only 21 years of age, Oklahoma native Parker Millsap is already drawing comparisons to Elvis Presley with his captivating live performances, soulful sound, and character-driven narratives. Since the release of his self-titled debut album last year, he has garnered a nomination for the Americana Music Association’s 2014 Emerging Artist of the Year and has received praise from the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, American Songwriter, the Boston Globe, and NPR, to name a few.

Open Mic with Cameron & Ryder * Tuesday, March 31 * 7pm
Sign-up at 6:30pm * Show at 7 * Free ticket giveaways

SHEL * Otan Vargas * Friday, April 3 * 9pm
Appealing to fans of Sarah McLachlan, Nickel Creek and Regina Spektor alike, SHEL gets its name from the four sisters who comprise the group: Sarah (violin, bass), Hannah (piano, keyboards, accordion), Eva (mandolin, cello, guitar, banjo), and Liza (drums, beatboxing). All four sing; they were all classically trained and homeschooled by a professional songwriter father and an artist mother. What comes out when they join forces is at once wholly organic but also delicately beautiful – a latticework of chamber-pop that connects the dots between bluegrass, the Roches, Philip Glass and Led Zeppelin. Otan Vargas’ candid, melancholy songs are likened to those of Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains.

Nellie McKay * Sunday, April 5 * 8pm
Nellie McKay, known for her uniquely eccentric blend of cabaret, pop, rock, jazz and hip-hop, comes to Helsinki Hudson just a week after the release of her new album, “My Weekly Reader,” on which she revisits some of the melodies born out of the fertile, conflicted climate of the 1960s. With the aid of Beatles’ producer Geoff Emerick, McKay covers songs from the era of political turmoil and creative delight by Frank Zappa, Ray Davies, Steve Miller, Country Joe McDonald, and others. McKay’s music has been heard on the TV shows “Mad Men,” “Boardwalk Empire,” “Weeds,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “NCIS” and “Nurse Jackie,” and she has appeared on numerous TV shows including The Late Show with David Letterman (with the Brooklyn Philharmonic).

Open Mic with Cameron & Ryder * Tuesday, April 7 * 7pm
