Ready, set, GO! Grab your running sneakers and get wild at one of the most scenic trail runs in the area.  

Wild Thing racers will start and end at Mass Audubon’s Pleasant Valley, traversing trails and carriage roads of varying elevations through Kennedy Park. Walk or run through hardwood forest in our 5k route or go the distance in our 10k runners route.  

Afterwards, join us for the post-race celebration in the big red barn at Pleasant Valley.  

Top finishers in their races will win prizes donated by local businesses. Some lucky runners will also win through raffle selection. Pay homage to your favorite plant or animal species with a creative costume and you could even win best dressed! Runners must be present to claim prizes.  

Pleasant Valley’s annual Wild Thing is a fundraising event which supports Mass Audubon’s conservation and environmental education programming in Berkshire County.
