For the past 11 years the first Saturday in August has meant the Mad Cow 5K for hundreds of happy CNY runners, families, and the Nelson Community. In these unusual and challenging times, it is important that we stay mentally and physically healthy. So, could there be any better reason to visit Nelson and the historic/scenic Rt. 20 this year to run/walk our charming Mad Cow 5K? We at the Town of Nelson, Nelson Farms, and Mad Co Tacos don’t think so. Let’s Keep the Mad Cow 5K Tradition Alive! So we are going to do this in 2020, but with a Covid 19 prevention twist! Here’s how we all can make it happen: First of all there will be no charge to register. Instead, if you can afford it, we would like you to make a donation to the cause of your choice. You will sign up by stopping by Nelson Farms or Mad Co Tacos to pick up a race form during business hours at either location, after July 15th, or you can print out the form here. Then sometime on either Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, July 31st, August 1st, or 2nd, come to Nelson and run/walk the 5K course, while practicing social distancing. (for those of you that may be new, a course map is attached). The start, finish and miles will be marked. There will be no traffic control, so please park legally and run safely. Record your time and date on the race form. And then sometime before the end of August, present your completed form to Nelson Farms for a 20 % discount on anything in the store (except beer, CDB, and gift boxes), and at Mad Co. Tacos for a free taco! To ‘sweeten’ the deal, any runner who can show a receipt of purchase from Mad Taco within 7 days of race completion, will get a free bag of Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans from Nelson Farms. We can’t wait to see you. (from a distance of course) We will post the times at the end of August. So bring your friends ,neighbors and families to celebrate life in Nelson on the first weekend in August. And just so you know, we also have some big plans for the 2021 Mad Cow 5k! Happy running!
