About the Race

Berkshire Humane Society’s Humane Race is a 5K timed-run and 1-Mile Fun Walk benefiting our animal shelter in Pittsfield, MA. Participants are welcome to run/walk with or without a dog. After many wonderful years in Williamstown, MA, this year’s event will take place in the city of North Adams. In addition to a change of scenery for our returning runners, we’re happy to support this culturally-vibrant community. They have been a wonderful partner in multiple vaccine and spay/neuter clinics. We are excited for this new partnership!

The Humane Race is Berkshire Humane Society’s largest fundraiser held in northern Berkshire County, and our community partners, sponsors, and participants make this special event possible. Last year’s sponsors and 250+ participants raised over $14,000. Our goal for 2018 is $20,000.

Whether racing or just walking, dogs and their folk (or just folks who love dogs) can enjoy a glorious romp through downtown North Adams. And as much as dogs really dig raising money for the Humane Race, kids love it too! Students of all ages get involved, baking dog biscuits, collecting pledges, and volunteering 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!

See you on race day!
