if you like beautiful scenery, quiet country areas, and hills, lots and lots of hills — you too will love the Amish Country Half Marathon. The race layout allows you to experience the best of rural America — you will pass by farms, horses in their pastures, and Amish families greeting you with waves, well wishes, and cowbells! At the end of the race, you end up with a wonderful medal (with spinner this year), and so much food that you might not have room for the fresh glazed donuts. The after race spread includes sandwiches, buttered noodles, fresh fruit, fresh chocolate chip cookies, chocolate milk, and of course those wonderful glazed donuts.

Set in the rolling hills of Holmes County, OH, the beauty of the course is only surpassed by the kindness of the locals and race organizers. The race coincides with Harvest Fest and Rib Cook Off. If you love ribs, you’ll love what these vendors have to offer! Lots of delicious food from local vendors. The community also shares an exceptional fireworks show during this weekend. Completely worth the travel time to get to Berlin, OH. This is a destination race that renews your spirit, while challenging your body in the very best way.

I was surprised by the start of the race. When the second heat arrived, we were told we could start at anytime, since the race was chip timed. So, no national anthem or group send off — this felt a bit clunky. The course was far more difficult in the first 2+ miles than anticipated. The inclines more than offset the few gentle descents at this point. First timers we’re no prepared for this. Aid stations and support along the course was excellent. The only other hiccup was the chaos at dropped-off bag pickup. Bags arrived after runners were finishing. . . This meant bags were only broadly organized into piles delineated by the thousand number signifier. Making finding a bag quite difficult. I suggest that the trucks immediately come down to the finish area after all runners are started so that the gear can be properly organized and sorted. Overall an excellent event that could be improved upon with a few tweaks.
