Enjoy the spring weather while supporting a great cause at the Daffodil Run:
The Daffodil Run is a celebration of the strength of young people, Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring programs, and our community! The event includes a 10K run and 5K run/walk, with courses that showcase the 50,000 daffodils planted in celebration of the Town of Amherst’s 250th anniversary. Both courses are USATF certified. On race day, Kendrick Park in downtown Amherst transforms into a festive, family-friendly space with a pre-race warm up, activities for all ages, music, a bounce house, games, food and more!
Register to walk or run by April 1, 2019 to be guaranteed a free event t-shirt. Registrants may select an adult size moisture-wicking t-shirt or a youth size cotton event t-shirt. On race day, all registrants can present their bib to receive a free post-race lunch.
Signing up for the Daffodil Run is one important step in helping to ignite the potential in local kids! Step two is raising funds by asking friends and family to support your cause with a donation. New in 2019, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hampden County will be joining CHD’s Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hampshire County, so runners and walkers can choose which program they want to raise funds for. We hope to match even more young people with mentors through this collaboration!
