The 15th Annual Humane Race was held on April 29, 2017!!!

Thank You!

We would like to thank all our sponsors, businesses, volunteers and friends who donated time, talent, money and the many many things that it takes to run a race. You truly rock! A great big thank you goes out to all of the runners and walkers and their furry friends who joined us last Saturday, for our 15th Annual Humane Race, we couldn’t do it without you! You are all wonderful and amazing people.

The 15th Annual Humane race results are available on Berkshire Running Center’s website as a pdf.

Pictures of this year’s race are still coming in and we hope to have more posted soon on the Humane Race Facebook page. If you haven’t already, stop by and see the great photos of some of the beautiful dogs at this year’s race. Check out the finish line photo’s on Berkshire Running Center’s Facebook page.


A big thanks, once again, to the Williamstown Selectboard for their ongoing and enthusiastic support of this very important fundraiser for Berkshire Humane Society, Inc.!

The Humane Race is a 5K timed run or 1 Mile Fun Walk (you are welcome to run/walk with or without a dog) to benefit The Berkshire Humane Society.

The race takes place in Williamstown, MA, in the northwest corner of The Berkshires.

Check-in and registration begins at at 9:00AM on Race Day. There is also a 1 Mile Fun Walk for those who’d rather not run.

Whether racing or just walking, dogs and their folk (or just folks who love dogs) can enjoy a glorious romp through downtown Williamstown.

And as much as dogs really dig raising money for the Humane Race, kids love it too!

The Humane Race is a real family affair, with students of all ages getting involved by baking dog biscuits, getting pledges and volunteering by the dozens on race day! Helping animals is a natural for kids, and the homeless animals of Berkshire County certainly shout out their thanks with big, wet kisses and lots of exuberant tail wagging!
