Scenic roads, fresh beer, local food, a world renowned music scene and wonderfully diverse people can all be found in the Pioneer Valley. That is why we have partnered with the Fort Hill Brewery to create this race to bring all of the greatness of the valley into one place, at one event. Join us for the beer, join us for the course, join us to celebrate the valley and to be part of what makes it so great! 

From the creators of the Happy Valley Half Marathon, is the third annual Fort Hill Brewery Half Marathon and 5K, in Easthampton, Massachusetts. Artists have helped to revive the former mill town, and the end result is eclectic and awe-inspiring. There’s lots to see and even more to do. From Mount Tom, to various parks and exhibits, to the emerging micro-brewery scene. Fort Hill Brewery began construction in 2012, right under the watchful eye of Mount Tom. Construction went on for two years at their picturesque location, before the first beer, an Oktoberfest, was released in 2014. That same month, Fort Hill Brewery opened its doors to the public, offering tastings, tours, and growlers. Now, they’ve expanded their tasting room and added on a brand new patio, equipped with a stage for live performances.

About Fort Hill Brewery

Fort Hill Brewery has been crafting quality lagers and ales in Easthampton, MA since 2014. The brewery came to Easthampton for its pure water because they know that better water means better beer. The brewery sits amongst a panoramic view of Mount Tom which sets the stage for unforgettable events, beer tastings, live music and of course the Fort Hill Brewery Half Marathon & 5K. 

Our Cause

We are excited to provide financial support to Easthampton High School’s Track & Field and Cross Country programs. We are supporting the launch of the school’s track club from the ground up. This includes track maintenance work, equipment and anything else that the program needs to hit the ground running (sorry for the pun).

We created the Fort Hill Brewery Half Marathon & 5K because we love running and want to share that passion with you. By supporting this cause we will hopefully enable a new generation of runners to find their passion for this amazing sport. What could be better than that?
