ANYONE is welcome to join us Saturday June 18, 2016 for the VEGAN POWER 50 K and 25 K! The 50 K will start at 7 am with a 6:45 AM race briefing and the 25 K will start at 10:00 AM with a pre race briefing at 9:45 AM. Check out the gorgeous single track course in the beautiful Berkshires as well as sample some awesome vegan race and recovery food and learn about the power of a plant based diet to slow climate change, preserve our ecosystems, decrease animal suffering and feel vital and alive in your running! THIS YEAR ALL PROFITS GO TO VINE SANCTUARY IN VT! Like last year we have the "Ski Lodge" reserved on Friday and we will have reg there form 3-5 PM, followed by casual potluck or bring your own food and speaker PATRICE JONES from VINE SANCTUARY to talk about animal rights activism, sanctuary life and intersectionality! If you are coming from out of town and spending Friday night, OR you live locally this will be an absolute treat! OH... PS this is a cup free event so make sure you have a hydration system that you wear, or bring a handheld to refill or have one stashed at the SF aid station. We have a bunch of collapsible race cups that you can take as well, made by Ultaspire, they work great!
