RACE CANCELLED – There are too many variables and considerations in the community to safely put on a live event in Amherst at this time. All registered participants received an email on October 7 providing details on their registration fees.

HMF appreciates continued patience and understanding as race plans are thoroughly assessed and looks forward to seeing race participants in 2021.


Enjoy a beautiful Sunday run through a quintessential New England college town, brimming with fall foliage at its peak. Half Marathon, Team Relay and 5K race options offer a distance for everyone.

All participants earn custom tech shirts, awesome finisher medals and fresh, hot food to re-fuel after the race. Enjoy the energetic and eclectic town of Amherst, buzzing with great restaurants, shops and local hot spots to discover.

Give Back: Please help give back to the community that has opened their streets for participants. Donations of nonperishable food will be collected on race day through the HMF Can drive to benefit The Amherst Survival Center.

HMF is proud to name the Amherst Survival Center as the charity partner of the Amherst Half Marathon, Relay & 5K. A portion of all half marathon entry fees will be donated to support their community works.

JOIN TEAM SURVIVAL and get extra special pre-race perks including an indoor, heated pre-race area, personalized bib and Mail My Packet. 100% of the $50 Team Survival fee will go to the Amherst Survival Center. DETAILS
