The scenic two-loop half marathon course begins and ends in the center of Simsbury, a charming town center loaded with quaint shops and wonderful restaurants.
Choose 5K, 10K or half marathon and enjoy picturesque courses along the Farmington River and the farmlands of Simsbury. A longtime favorite local race, the Amica Iron Horse Half was once selected to Bart Yasso’s Favorites Picks in Runner’s World and profiled in Cool Running.
Bring the kids to participate in the HMF FitKids quarter mile, half mile or mile races, which start later in the morning, playground access and activities for kids through the morning.
The post-race party is set up around the bandshell at Simsbury Meadows and features Finish Line Village with music, race awards presentations, Amica Victory podium selfie station and signature grilled cheese sandwiches, prepared by local Boy Scout Troop 175.
