#AmherstHalf. A beautiful course through a quintessential New England college town, buzzing with energy and an eclectic vibe – the Amherst Half Marathon provides a weekend of activity. Sunday features the 13.1 mile race and a 2-person or 3-person half marathon team relay. With a family 5K on Saturday, plus youth race options including timed 2-mile and HMF FitKids fun runs for the littlest runners, there’s a race for everyone in the family.

Make a weekend out of it, participate in the Amherst Double – run the 5K Saturday and Half Marathon on Sunday. Enjoy fall foliage in the heart of New England, with great restaurants, shops and local hot spots to discover.

HMF is proud to name the Amherst Survival Center as the charity partner of the Amherst Half Marathon Weekend. A portion of all half marathon entry fees will be donated to support their community works. We also encourage all race participants to bring non-perishable donations for the HMF Can drive to benefit the Center. More…
