Thank you to everyone who braved the rain and made our 5K and Open House such a fun event on May 5, 2019. Planning has already begun for next year’s event!

Ready to show your horsepower? Hope’s Legacy Equine Rescue is hosting its third annual “Hoofin’ It For Horses” 5K Trail Run on Sunday May 3, 2020. The trail will take you through the beautiful, peaceful terrain of Castle Rock Farm, Hope’s Legacy’s new permanent location. This run is open to all age groups. All proceeds will benefit the animals at Hope’s Legacy, a 501(c)(3) charity.

Since 2008, Hope’s Legacy has rescued over 240 horses, donkeys, mules, miniature horses, and ponies from situations ranging from Animal Control seizures to owner surrenders. The need for equine rescue in Virginia is not decreasing, and Hope’s Legacy functions as a necessary community resource primarily through individual donations. Castle Rock Farm was purchased to enable the Rescue to eventually accommodate about 50% more equines than currently served.

Hope’s Legacy will be holding a public Open House from Noon – 5PM following the Hoofin’ It For Horses run. Runners are welcome to stay on the property, meet and learn about our 4-legged friends, and take advantage of the food trucks, meet and greets with the horses, vendors, a tack sale and kids games.

Hoofin’ It For Horses will be held Sunday, May 3, 2020, at 2080 Castle Rock Road, Afton, VA 22920. Registration on May 3rd will begin at 7:00AM, with the Trail Run beginning at 8AM. Early registration for the 5K (May 10, 2019 through April 28, 2020): Adults $30, 17 and under $20. Race will be subject to weather. 

Late registration (April 29 through the day of race): Adults $35, 17 and under $25.

The “Kids’ Field Dash” (8 years and under) is $5.
