Our Story

Founded in 2011, Lemme Run, LLC has been at the forefront of fostering the running community and promoting a healthier lifestyle in Western Massachusetts. Since our founding day, we have been committed to making a significant impact on our local community by introducing a multitude of running events, ranging from kids runs, to 5Ks to challenging marathons.

Building Community

Our journey began with a vision to create an inclusive and supportive space for runners of all fitness levels and ages. Through organized race events and comprehensive training programs, we have nurtured the rapid growth of the running community. This movement served to bring people together in support of local charities, and encouraged individuals to push their limits and discover the benefits of an active lifestyle.

Running for a Cause

One of our proudest achievements has been our commitment to giving back. Over the years, we’ve organized popular and highly successful events aimed at supporting and funding a variety of local non-profit organizations. Through these initiatives, we’ve established a strong support base for numerous programs in our area, helping to create a stronger, more connected community.

The Berkshire Running Foundation

As we reflected on our journey over the years, what is important in our lives is family and neighbors. The Berkshire Running Foundation marks a significant milestone in our mission to take the running movement to the next level. Our vision for the Berkshire Running Foundation is to expand the reach and impact of the movement, promoting the core values that running encourages – a safe, healthy, and balanced life.

Through the foundation, we aim to continue our legacy of fostering a vibrant running community, supporting local non-profits, and advocating for a healthier, more active lifestyle.

Thank you for being a part of our journey. Together, we can make a lasting difference in our community, one step at a time.
