The Course

Our courses will take you on a tour of the valley's scenery in the shadow of Mount Tom. There is just enough elevation to keep things interesting but a PR will still be within reach. All races finish at the Fort Hill Brewery where the post race party and your free beer await! 

Half Marathon

Get ready to take in some inspiring Pioneer Valley scenery! Our half marathon course follows quiet roads and shaded bike paths as it passes farm fields with views of Mount Tom. The course has only 472 feet of elevation gain with no long climbs. This will keep things fun and challenging for sure but if you want to PR or just a fun running experience then this is a course where you can get it! We will have aid stations stocked with water, electrolytes and positivity every two miles. 

 

 

5k

We can describe our 5K course in just three words: fast, flat & scenic! With only 92 feet of elevation gain there are no hills to stand between you and a PR and the finish line party at the Fort Hill Brewery. Even though the course is flat your eyes will still be dazzled by the heights of nearby Mount Tom. We will have one aid station on the course stocked with water, electrolytes and plenty of encouragement to get you to the finish line.
