The Big Brothers Big Sisters Daffodil Run is a celebration of our community, mentoring relationships, and the strength of young people! 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, the Common in downtown Amherst will be transformed into a festive, family-friendly space with a pre-race warm up, fun activities for all ages, music, a bounce house, games, free BBQ for participants and more!


Register to walk or run by April 1, 2020 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.
