My whole crew looks forward to the Country Run every year. We dress up like country bumpkins, tackle the fun course smattered with hay bales, inflatable animals, and farm trucks, then have a blast at the celebratory Country Fair with complimentary carnival games, live music, and free treats galore. It’s a great morning, even for those of us who prefer to amble through the picturesque park at our own pace. The Country Run is all about having good old-fashioned fun with the family, so no racing is required!

Country Fair

The Country Fair opens in Dell Diamond at 8:30 a.m. on race day, with more down-home country fun than you can shake a stick at: carnival booths, face painting, balloon twisting, live music, a beer garden, food, and giveaways. Everything at the fair is included in the price of registration. So, as long as you register in advance with the code FREEFUN, you will get everything for FREE! (Just be sure to show your ID at check-in to get a wristband, if you plan to visit the beer garden.)

    Hello,

    Thanks for the info on is. Sounds like a lot of fun. The discount code provided does not work.

    • Hi Lola! The code is working for me. I used it twice last night and once this morning. Where are you running into difficulties? If you are registering for the 5K, the code removes both the $10 fee and the $2.50 service fee, changing your total to FREE. The code does not cover the optional chip timing or stand-alone admission to the Country Fair (which you don’t need if you’re registering for the 5K, because it’s included).

        There’s no option to put in a passcode. When does that option appear?

        • After you check the box saying that you agree to the terms of the waiver, it will take you to the payment window. It will say your total is $10 plus a $2.50 service fee. The window for the promo code will be on the right. After you enter the code in all caps, with no spaces, it will change your total to FREE.

            Thank you!! It worked. 🙂
