Amish Country Running Festival Athlete Guide (2021 for reference only)

Enjoy this course as it rolls thru the largest Old Order Amish Community in the US. You will have breathtaking views from vistas that you won't get anywhere else.  You will see working Amish farms, clothes lines full of crisp, clean laundry, the colors of autumn and be greeted by waving Amish families as you run past their homes.  

Finisher medals, long sleeved race t-shirts, breakfast AND lunch, fully stocked aid stations at each mile, STBC Beer Zone, fire pit, music, massage therapists on site, and more, believe it or not.   2018 was the inaugural year for this event with over 150 participants from more than 10 different states and two countries.  

Did we mention that this course is hilly??  Train for the hills and challenge yourself on one of the toughest yet gorgeous marathon and half marathon races there is.   The course is on paved roads the entire way.  No cut off times!
