In this fun springtime community event participants race through beautiful downtown Amherst past many of the 50,000 daffodils planted in celebration of the Town of Amherst’s 250th anniversary. The Daffodil Run includes a 10k run & 5k run/walk which bring participants together in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hampshire County. Both courses are USATF Permit pending.

On race day, Kendrick Park is transformed into a festive, family friendly space with pre-race warm up activities for all ages, music, bounce house, games, food and more! All levels of participation are welcome. Celebrate spring with us!

Individuals and teams can support Big Brothers Big Sisters by fund raising for this event. Fund raising and registration fees support the work of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hampshire County and the positive impact the organization makes on the community. Growing up can be hard work, especially for young people facing difficult challenges. When team and individual participants help raise funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters, they give the gift of mentoring to a child in need. For that child, this gift can mean friendship, new experiences, new possibilities in life, increased ability to express themselves, improved academic performance, confidence in the future, and more!
