Tryon Farm Trail 5/10/50K Run
The TRYON FARM TRAIL 5/10/50K RUN is located in Northwest Indiana - one hour from Chicago. The course is a 10k loop through rolling native prairie grassland, towering beechwoods, and sloping dunes. Approximately 60% of the course is on wooded single track that follows the existing deer path. The remainder of the trail brings you through a protected native prairie grassland. You'll run over a sod-roofed modern house built into the landscape and expect your feet to get a bit wet as you cross over a couple of small waterways.
The Start/Finish line will feature fresh, delicious, local food from Hungry Truck Inc. and Award-Winning Craft Beers. In addition, there will be complimentary treats from Valpo Velvet, CLIF BAR and Kroger.
Free overnight camping is available for 50K Ultrarunners. Contact the to make arrangements.

Celebrating Traditions Together
The Kinfolk Table
Sat October 26, 2013 (PAST EVENT)
More Kinfolk Photos
The Kinfolk Table came to Tryon Farm. It all began with an early afternoon Cocktail at Parson's Chicken and Fish. Once guests arrived at Tryon Farm they found a harvest popcorn and cider bar, a hayride tour of the property, and a Kinfolk's pop-up pantry for tastings of local spirits, beer, and Rare Bird Preserves.
Kinfolk dinners always include a pie - Pleasant House Bakery created savory, seasonal pies meant for sharing, along with autumnal side dishes inspired by The Kinfolk Table cookbook. All served amid a long, candlelit table set with vintage tableware by Plate: Vintage Crockery Rental.
The night ended with a bonfire, fall inspired sweets (and perhaps another nip of whiskey) before heading back into the night.
Country Fall Weekend!
Sat October 12-13, 2013 (PAST EVENT)
We're talking Saturday evening bonfire, wood-fired pizza, wine & star gazing! Stick around for an outdoor barn screening of Back to the Future!
Sunday morning is all about fitness + well being. All this will be rounded out at noon with guided tours of Tryon's new homes and 170+ acres of countryside. Make sure to fill your belly with a food truck lunch and craft beers. We haven't forgotten the kids! They will have a blast working on eco-crafts, taking haywagon rides and hunting for pumpkins.
