Sixth Annual “Run the Farm Four Mile Challenge” to Benefit Bethel Hobbs Community Farm

Town Seal

Virtual event will be held Saturday, September 5 through Sunday, September 13

Farmingville, NY - Brookhaven Town Councilman Kevin LaValle, has announced that he will co-sponsor the Sixth Annual “Run the Farm Four Mile Challenge” with County Legislator Tom Muratore and Friends of Hobbs Farm. Due to COVID-19, the event will be held “virtually” from Saturday, September 5 through Sunday, September 13. Participants are invited to lace up their sneakers and traverse the four-mile course that includes a fast start on roughly two miles of flat terrain leading to a mile of rolling hills and two mildly challenging ascents before concluding at the historic grounds of Bethel Hobbs Community Farm in Centereach. The first 300 participants will receive a 4M Run the Farm buff and be entered in a special raffle. To register, please visit our registration website. Proceeds will go towards repairing the Hobbs Community Farm barn that is critical to the farm’s functions. Even if you don’t run, you can make a donation for any amount and be entered in the raffle to win a special prize. This year’s event is sponsored by Shop Rite of Selden, owned and operated by the Gallagher family and Middle Country Automotive (MCA) of Selden and MCA II of Centereach.

Councilman LaValle said, “Hobbs Community Farm plays such an important role in the community and they rely on this annual event to continue their good work. I am proud to once again join Legislator Muratore to help make this year’s virtual ‘Run the Farm Four Mile Challenge’ a success and I thank the runners and our sponsors for their support.”
