The Berkshire Ultra Running Community for Service (BURCS) invites vegans and non-vegans alike to join us for the 6th annual Vegan Power 50K and 25K in support of local animal sanctuaries.
Date: Saturday 6/22/2019
Distances: 50K and 25K
Start Times: 50K, 7:00am. 25K, 10:00am
Location: Pittsfield State Forest, Pittsfield MA.
Course: Mostly single track on a 5+ mile trail loop. 50K runners will complete 6 full loops, and 25K runners will complete 3 full loops. While elevation gain per loop is only approximately 230ft, the numerous roots, rocks, and switchbacks make this a fun but challenging course.
Aid Stations: 2 total on the loop, which includes the start/finish.
Awards: Each finisher will receive a race award.
Shirts: Shirts for all registered runners signed up prior to May 15th. After that we can't guarantee one but will try.
Camping: There are multiple campsites in Pittsfield State Forest complete with showers and bathrooms. Runners are responsible for booking their own campsites with Pittsfield State Forrest.
