At Berkshire Running Foundation, we host a variety of exciting events throughout the year, each designed to showcase the beauty of Berkshire County and the power of the running community. Our featured events include:

Mother’s Day Races

Celebrate the strength and empowerment of women in our long-running, annual Mother’s Day Race, a fun and empowering event for women and girls of all ages. The addition of a 1 mile Community Run/Walk encourages children, men and LGBTQIA+ to participate in this fun event.

MountainOne Steel Rail Races

Discover the beauty of the Berkshires along the Ashuwillticook Rail Trail as you run in our flagship event, featuring a range of race distances for all levels of runners.

Lee Lions Memorial 5K

The Lions Club of Lee is excited for the Memorial Day 5K event where part of the proceeds will benefit the One Call Away Foundation, an organization that assists veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Berkshire Pride 5K

The Berkshire Pride 5K and 1 mile Walk kicks off Pride Month in June for the City of Pittsfield. It serves as a fundraiser for Berkshire Pride, a non-profit organization that provides safe spaces and events where LGBTQIA+ community members can live and thrive. Come walk or run to celebrate their successes and show your support.

4th of July Road Race

Kick off your Independence Day celebrations with a patriotic run on the Hometown 4th of July Parade route  in the heart of Berkshire County, Pittsfield, MA.

High Lawn Farm Keep Moo’ving 5K

There’s not a more scenic race that shows off the picturesque landscapes of the Berkshire hills! Come out to High Lawn Farms and be treated to a fun event that features their homemade ice cream at the finish.

Mt Greylock Road Race

This 8-mile run up Massachusetts’ highest mountain began in 1975. It is part of the USATF Mountain Goat Series and attracts hundreds of runners from all the northeast to compete. The run begins in Adams and takes the runners to the summit to finish.

FIR 5K

Runners and walkers unite for our FIR 5K event that benefits our Fitness In Recovery program. This program is a proven benefit in helping individuals deal with the issues surrounding any type of recovery; whether it be from substance abuse, anxiety, depression, grief, food issues, or being a caregiver to someone in recovery.

The Red Lion Inn Roaring 5K

Get your “roar” on at the Roaring 5K, a spirited event that brings out the best of our community for a great cause.

Soldier On Veterans Day 5K

Soldier On, in collaboration with Berkshire Running Foundation, will host the Veterans Day 5K run/walk. The event will support the many at-risk veterans that Soldier On serves, and will not only provide financial support for veterans, but create a larger community of support that goes far beyond the day of the 5K.

MountainOne Thankful 5K

Express gratitude while you run in our Thankful 5K, a family-friendly event held on the morning of Thanksgiving that benfits our local food pantries and programs.
