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. (Please pre-register to save $5.00. Only the first 150 people to pre-register are guaranteed to receive a T-shirt. Last year, Day-of-Race registrants were too late to get a T-shirt!)

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!
