Do you have Spring Fever? Does your dog have Spring Fever? It is officially spring… and one of the hallmarks of spring in the Berkshires is the Berkshire Humane Society’s Humane Race! The Humane Race is a 1mile fun walk or a 5K Run with or without a dog. (Dogs are not mandatory, only dog lovers!) Scheduled for Saturday April 29th in Williamstown, MA, this year’s 15th Humane Race promises a fun morning for people and their dogs with one small but exciting change-the Run will be a timed race with the help of Berkshire Running Center! As Christa Abel, owner of Bark N’ Cat in North Adams and Race Director of this popular North County event, explains, “Several former and current participants suggested making the Humane Race a timed event. We decided to take that feedback and run with it, no pun intended!”

Register for this event today. Pre registration fees are $20 for children under 12 and $25 for adults. Registration the morning of is an additional $5 for adults, but the same for children under 12. The first 150 runners and walkers to register will receive a race T-shirt. Dogs will get commemorative bandanas while supplies last.

Participants can also collect pledges to raise more money for the Berkshire Humane Society and be eligible for special pledge prizes. Individual fundraising pages and pledge sheets at humanerace.org/collect-pledges/.

Registration and pledge forms also available at Bark N’ Cat, Greylock Animal Hospital, Berkshire Running Center & Berkshire Humane Society.

The Humane Race begins at 10AM. Check In and Registration is at the start line at 24 Water St. from 9am-9: 50am. The course winds through the beautiful village of Williamstown and Williams College ending at Spring Street. Prizes for runners, pledge earners and dogs will be awarded at the finish line and refreshments, doggie pools and merchandise will be available.
