The SWAG: Bringing back the spirit of the original race

This year we are going back in time, bringing back some of the elements that make the Amherst 10-Miler the classic New England Road Race that we have grown to love, as well as adding in some new fun stuff!

    • Long-sleeve cotton shirts for all registered runners (and volunteers!).
    • Water tables and cheering crews along the course and at the finish line
    • Bag drop/gear car to bring your warm dry clothes to the finish line for the .3ish-mile walk back to the post-race food at the Middle School
    • Access to locker room and showers
    • Hot, locally-sourced (to the extent possible) post-race food, including pizza, chili, and other goodies
    • Merchandise prizes from local businesses (will be awarded randomly by pulling bib numbers from a hat, but winners MUST be present to claim their prizes or another winner will be drawn)
    • Cash prizes for overall top finishers, top age group finishers, top teams, and top local finishers.
