Treasured Haven Farm Trail Runs follow the farm trails through a mix of slightly rolling open field and prairie areas, woods, ravines, and woodland hills, many that overlook Rock Creek. The farm trails were created to be used for monitoring our organic fields, woodland management, or accessing the maple trees that are tapped to make maple syrup. You enjoy the countryside and woodlands traversing an organic family farm while running or hiking a very unique race here on the edge of the St. Croix River Valley near Rush City in East Central Minnesota. The farm is located an easy drive five miles off the I-35 corridor and conveniently located within an hour from the Twin Cities Metro, 90 minutes from Duluth, and easily accessible from other areas of Minnesota and Western Wisconsin.

The Trail Runs at Treasured Haven Farm serve many purposes.  The private farm trails provide a great running opportunity and are self-sustained through the trail runs held on the farm. The events are a labor of love by the Johnson Family and solely sponsored by Treasured Haven Farm. We love to share this natural environment with those who appreciate it's amazing beauty and nature's challenges, and to encourage the sport of cross country and trail running for all ages. We also offer our course for high school cross country meets. Many liken the experience to running through a beautiful private park. The trail running events help to connect people with nature, the land, agriculture, and organic farmers, and to take and active part in supporting the continuation of family farming as well.

To see runners experience that joy of meeting their challenges, the determination and pride in themselves running their own race... priceless! The races exist to challenge and to dig deep within and inspire others to what is possible! You've Got This!

Teams and groups are encouraged! The race events are open to teams, groups, and companies as well. It is a great location and venue to provide team building and a group challenge where all the logistics of the event set-up are handled. The group leader just organizes the runners and submits the registration. If you have a group of ten or more runners for a race, contact the farm for more info for a Group Registration option or other information.
