The Daffodil Run is a celebration of the strength of young people, mentoring, and our community! Both race courses are USATF certified and showcase the 50,000 daffodils planted in celebration of the Town of Amherst’s 250th anniversary. On race day, Kendrick Park in downtown Amherst is transformed into a festive, family-friendly space with a pre-race warm up, activities for all ages, music, a bounce house, games, free BBQ for participants 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 empowering the potential of young people in your community! Step two is raising funds by asking friends and family to support your cause with a donation. When you help raise funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters, you give the gift of mentoring to a child facing adversity. Take the next step in standing up for kids and create your fundraising page when you register today!
