Start/Finish Line: Your own driveway
Route: Your neighborhood/Your favorite walking or running route
Race Day: May 2

For the last seven years, runners and walkers have helped raise funds for Berkshire South’s Teen & Youth Wellness programs by participating in our 5K Run/Walk. This year, out of an abundance of caution and concern for the health and wellbeing of our community, we’re holding a Virtual 5K. We hope you’ll come together with us in the spirit of community to support these vital programs, which need your support now more than ever.

Participation couldn’t be easier!
Choose your route.
Measure the distance of your favorite running route or walking path. Aim for a distance as close to 5K as possible.

Run or walk your chosen route at 10am on May 2nd. Take video or photos of yourself, your walking mates or your route before, during or after your run.

Send your video, images and run times to us at We’ll share them on social media and on our website. We can’t wait to show how we all came together when we had to stay apart.
