Santa Express 5K and 1 Mile Reindeer Route
Saturday, December 2, 2017, 10:00 AM
The Santa Express is a holiday themed race that starts at the Barn on our historic grounds. The race takes you across the beautiful grounds and into the Wyandotte County Park. The race goes around a loop and back to the Barn for a great finish that includes a celebration of train ride, cookies, hot chocolate (water if you must) and visits with Santa in the depot! Be sure to enjoy the selfie stations and the reindeer games!
The 3rd Annual Santa’s Express 5K and Reindeer Route supports the historic village at the National Agricultural Center. This year, the one-room school from Piper, KS, is highlighted and proceeds will ensure a new coat of paint!

National Agricultural Hall of Fame
The historic village at the National Agricultural Hall of Fame represents a rural American village at the turn of the 19th century. The one-room school, black smith shop and train depot are historic living history museums that allow families a look into the lives their grandparents and great-grandparents lived. The race raises money to preserve this history and the fun of exploring it at the National Agricultural Hall of Fame!
