Fall Foliage and Cider Run

Published on 2019-10-08 by crockerfarmpgo Uncategorized

Run (or walk) to support Amherst A Better Chance and enjoy a cup of cider at the finish line! The run starts at Amherst Town Common, partly circles Amherst College campus and enters the woodlands of The Amherst College bird sanctuary, highlighted by a beautiful view over the Pelham Hills. Finally, it follows the Norwottuck Rail Trail back to the campus. Upon completion, runners and walkers are invited to enjoy a cup of cider, healthy snacks, entertainment and fun activities.

The family friendly 5k Fall Foliage And Cider Run is a community celebration of Amherst A Better Chance, a residential high school program that prepares academically talented young men of color from educationally underserved school districts for college and future leadership roles.

An Amherst tradition, for 48 years this event has brought together hundreds of members of the community together annually to admire the diverse colors of the foliage while they walk or run in support and celebration of diversity in our community.
