Fighting climate change one idea at a time
Bemis-Forslund Pie Race
The annual Bemis-Forslund Pie Race is a 5K footrace named for Henry Bemis (class of 1891), who donated prizes starting in 1908, and for Gladys Hall Forslund ’26, wife of longtime Mount Hermon Athletic Director Axel Forslund. Apple pies are awarded to runners who complete the course in a specified time.
Alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, neighbors, and friends participate in America’s longest running footrace for a chance to win a delicious apple pie, handmade by NMH Dining Services and students. The 129th Bemis-Forslund Pie Race will be held on Sunday, Sept. 29 at 1 pm with a new course and distance. Please note that the race course is changing this year to a 5k (or 3.1 miles).
