Save the date! Earn a pie at NMH.

The 129th Bemis-Forslund Pie Race is less than two weeks away, and we hope that you will join us for this great tradition at NMH. The race is sponsored by the NMH Alumni Association and NMH Athletics. Alumni of all ages, and NMH family members, employees, current students, and friends of the school are welcome to participate in this footrace, the oldest in America.

In our continued efforts to prepare for the new course and distance (5K), we have adjusted the qualification times for earning pies. Our running experts have used detailed analysis to generate these times, with the goal of maintaining a comparable level of challenge.  We have also further partitioned the age categories for runners over the age of 35. The new times are as follows:

Age Category     Qualifying Times

Under 35 (M)        23:00

Under 35 (F)         26:00

35–46 (M)            27:00

35–46 (F)             30:00

47–59 (M)            29:30

47–59 (F)             33:30

60+                     Finish


We strongly encourage all participants to pre-register using this link, so that you may receive a free commemorative bib with your name on it.   However, you are not required to pre-register in order to participate.  You may just show up and run, or walk, as you wish!
