Fiesta themed race & after party inspired by our Mango Habanero Hard Cider!
Inspired by our Mango Habanero hard cider El Chavo, Chasing El Chavo encourages patrons of all ages to take part in one of Blake’s favorite traditions.
This fun fiesta themed 5k run/walk takes you through our vast, family-owned 150-acre orchard on gravel trails, testing your endurance. All racers will take home a commemorative pint glass and t-shirt. Racers will also receive an after-race donut, pint of hard cider and exclusive invitation to our after-race party in our Orchard Square where food and drinks will be available for purchase on our patio. Come join the party!
Costumes are highly encouraged. Strollers are permitted at your own discretion as the run will be on gravel. Pets are not permitted.
Chasing El Chavo is open for children and adults of any age. Participants under the age of 21 can enjoy a glass of sweet apple cider following the race. Strollers are permitted but at your own risk as the entire course is gravel/grass. Pets are not permitted.
2nd Place Age Category Male & Female
With 100+ acres to socially distance, this will be a safe outdoor activity where you will get to socially distance run or walk the wide path around the farm. We will communicate additional procedures and protocols with campers and families closer to the event date, as the situation and protocols become clearer. If needed, staggered start times will be implemented to avoid congestion at the start/finish line.
Blake’s Orchard & Cider Mill & Blake’s Hard Cider Company will continue to follow all guidance issued by the CDC and the State of Michigan.
