This 10 mile point-to-point race runs in peak fall foliage season from Amherst to Northampton. Starting in the heart of the UMass Amherst campus with a run through downtown, the bulk of the race is along the scenic Norwottuck Trail, a paved bike trail with generous net downhill elevation and panoramic views of the Holyoke Range and the Connecticut River Valley.
Take it on solo or as part of a 2-person relay, with the exchange at the 5 mile point.
A highlight of the 10 mile race course is crossing the CT River on the Northampton Lattice Truss Bridge before running through downtown Northampton to finish by Union Station and celebrate at The Deck Bar post-race.
All participants earn a custom finisher medal and high quality long sleeve technical shirt, and enjoy an awesome post-race party featuring delicious food and ice cold beer! Plus, register by September 17, 2023, and receive a personalized race bib with your name!
