Amherst, Daffodil Run

April 28 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT



CHD’s Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hampshire County will hold the 14th Annual Daffodil Run in person at the Amherst Town Common, Amherst, MA 01002.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hampshire County is excited to announce the 2024 date for 14th Annual Daffodil Run! Traditionally held on the last Sunday in April, our much anticipated timed and certified race will be held on Sunday, April 28th, 2024, with the festivities beginning at 10AM at the Amherst Town Common.

This community event has become the first marker of spring for the town of Amherst and draws hundreds of people to the area to participate and cheer on their family and friends. The Daffodil Run includes complimentary bagels, fruit and coffee for race participants and a pre-race warm-up with Jazzercise Amherst, followed by the timed and certified 5K Run/Walk & 10K Run. The post-race party includes music and tasty food from Caravan Kitchen Food Truck and Penni’s Catering. There will be yellow kites for flying on the Common, and (weather permitting) a picnic game style tug-of-war with Amherst Fire Department versus Amherst Police Department!

The Daffodil Run helps sustain the power of youth mentoring through Big Brothers Big Sisters by connecting adult mentors with young people in our community. Once matched they go on to build a meaningful, positive relationship that empowers the potential inherent in each child.

Walk or run and invite others to join you in support of mentoring.  Register for the Daffodil Run.
