The course is designed to emulate a run through the city streets, right up to the finish line, which is actually a climbing wall. It's one branch of The Raid Series, a trifecta of terrain-inspired 5Ks that also include the Mountain Raid and Beach Raid. After racers complete the course, which is on the sand of Old Orchard Beach just one hour and fifteen minutes from Boston, they can jet to the after-party to enjoy beer and live music.

These protected lands stay open to the public, who can explore a 1.7-mile trail network or attend antique auto gatherings and music festivals. The farm's grounds are also home to the Skyline Farm Carriage Museum, which displays classic vehicles used before Henry Ford discovered that there was a car in his garage.
