The Daffodil Fun Run is a 5k road race (run/walk) in Amherst that raises funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hampshire County, a program of the Center for Human Development. In this fun and festive community event, participants race past many of the 50,000 daffodils that were planted in celebration of the Town of Amherst's 250th anniversary. The event is held each year at the beginning of spring, when the daffodils are in full bloom. Join participants after the race for music and a free barbecue. Pre-registrants will receive a free "Daffodil Fun Run" t-shirt.Questions? Please contact Owen Freeman Daniels '01
