The Amish Country Half is getting back to live racing in 2021!

For your convenience all 2020 Registrants are automatically rolled into the 2021 races as promised.

COVID 19 PLAN

We will be following the state of Ohio’s guidelines for Covid safety.  Most of the race and registration will look similar to the great atmosphere we have enjoyed in previous years.  We encourage runners and spectators to spread out a bit more than they may have in the past.  Masks will not be required.

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!
