The 10 mile point-to-point race is not to be missed, running 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.
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, high quality long sleeve technical shirt, and can enjoy an awesome post-race party featuring delicious food and ice cold beer!
