The Wild Thing, a 5k/10k trail run starting and ending at Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary to raise money for conservation and education programs in Berkshire County.
The 5k and 10k courses go through Kennedy Park, the perfect location for a trail race with almost 15 miles of trails through hardwood forests and scenic views of the Berkshires. The race goes through carriage roads and single track with a variety of elevation in both the 10k and 5k distances.
Participants who register by May 19 are guaranteed a t-shirt and all racers are invited to join us for the post-race celebration in the big red barn at Pleasant Valley. Awards for the top male and female finishers in the 5k and 10k races and then lots of prizes given out by random drawing among all participants.
