9:00 am–3:00 pm

Join us for Wild Thing 2017, a wooded 5k/10k trail run starting and ending at Pleasant Valley to raise money for conservation and education programs in Berkshire County.

The 5k course is great for runners or walkers. Runners can challenge themselves with the longer 10k distance.

Kennedy Park is 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 20 are guaranteed a t-shirt and all racers are invited to join us for the post-race celebration in the big red barn.

The race will be capped at 300 runners. Register early to guarantee a spot!
