Why Run the Amish Country Half Marathon?

The Amish Country Half Marathon course is a unique, challenging route, unlike most typical races. You’ll experience the gorgeous rolling hills, sprawling Amish countryside, and take in some of Ohio’s most beautiful farmland. Challenge your body, refresh your mind, and run with the locals on the back roads of Holmes County, and enjoy hot buttered noodles at the finish!

All proceeds from the Amish Country Half Marathon, 10k and 5k benefit Pure Gift of God, a local organization that helps fund adoptions all over the US and East Holmes Fire & EMS.

There will be professional photographers on the course to provide you with free photos of your epic race day experience!

Start your day off by running the race, and stick around for the Ribfest and Harvest Festival Parade in downtown Berlin!
