The FREAK’N FARMER 2017!
For over 50 years the Covert Farmily has been farming the 650 acres of Covert Farms in the rugged mountains north of Oliver BC. Inspired by history, an adventure obstacle race was born that speaks to the many arduous tasks that farm hands had to perform in the dry blistering heat of Canada’s only desert.
Adventure Obstacle Race. Race the Farm – Eat The Farm – Drink the Farm! Organic Meal included/Beverage Garden/On-site Camping/Live Music/ Spectators Welcome w/ 50% of Spectator Ticket Proceeds going to Charity. This is a zero-trace event/ Register online. Considered by many as the most grueling of Adventure races around, athletes race through lush fields and vineyards, wild grasslands of the neighbouring mountains and down to the Okanagan River on the valley floor below. Throughout the race course obstacles abound that re-create the tough jobs that are required on a working farm.
