Come enjoy a New England autumn day in the beautiful Berkshires of Massachusetts and run in the Pittsfield State Forest. There will be two races, a 50 mile Ultra Marathon and a Trail Marathon (26 miles). The race will begin and finish on the grounds of the historic Hancock Shaker Village. After the race, there will be food and local beer from Big Elm Brewery! Also, every 50 mile finisher will bring home a six-pack of Big Elm beer!!
Local time: 7:22 AM
While you are running, your family and crew may take advantage of a discounted price, and enjoy the farm and museum of Hancock Shaker Village. This is a very challenging course, lots of ascending and descending over very technical trails. Some Aid Stations are 6 miles from the previous station. These races will test your determination and endurance to finish. The race will be run, rain or shine.
