The Malta Seedling Project is hosting the 5K Tractor Trot again!!  

Come support our community, no experience needed. Any level of physical fitness, you can walk, jog or run the course. Sideline cheerleaders are welcome also!

The Malta Seedling Project strives to bring awareness of all the wonderful opportunities Malta provides: families, businesses and organizations wishing to develop and enhance our community and lives.

Proceeds from this race will continue the Malta Seedling Project’s current activities and offer new opportunities. Community beautification, Community Garden Club of vegetables & flowers, Music in the Park, Movie in the Park, Family Fishing Derby, Fall Garland Festival, and a town mural are some of the AMAZING achievements brought to our community.

New welcome signage, flower beds within the Village, a walk/bike path between town & our local subdivision are a few developments already completed along with a magnificent Mural to highlight our Malta history and heritage!

To promote fitness and healthy lifestyles for everyone we encourage your participation. Whether you are running your first 5k, striving for your personal best, looking for family time or enjoy a little competition, this event is for you.  The race will be timed & with a shot gun start. Immediately following the regular race, we will be hosting a Kid’s Dash at the Lion’s Park track (see details below for ages and distances).
