About This Activity

Joe English Twilight Challenge

                                  

Runners are invited to the Joe English Twilight Challenge. The dusk-to-dark challenge offers a choice of events on a moonlit night: First, a team-relay marathon, 10 laps of a 2.62-mile loop (two or five on a team). Second, a team-relay half-marathon, 5 laps of a 2.62-mile loop (two or five on a team). Third, an ultramarathon, as many 2.62-mile laps as you can do in 6 hours or run 10 laps and complete the trail marathon. Lastly, you can run the half or full marathon individually. This unique event, featuring a festive music, food, and lighted “Twilight Central” event location that is spectator-friendly, is hosted by the Amherst Land Trust and Freestyle Farm LLC. All proceeds support conservation.


The Twilight Challenge is a night time event, run in darkness, with the aid of moonlight and illuminated markings. The running surface is dirt or grass and specially groomed for this event.
