2020 May Day Races

2020 May Day Races

At long last, the CRA May Day race is here – Virtually!

This spring when we postponed our Annual May Day Race to September, we were disappointed, but we thought we had it covered. Little did we know! With COVID-19 still wreaking havoc, our traditional race is just not possible. But as one of the oldest races in Berkshire County, we could not disappoint our loyal runners. And as a critical fundraiser for youth programs, we definitely couldn’t disappoint our kids. So, we’ve decided to go Virtual!

The virtual run will take place from Saturday, September 26th through Sunday, October 4th.

The fee to participate is $25.

Registration is on the Berkshire Running Center: https://berkshirerunningcenter.com/races-and-events/

You will enter your results on the Berkshire Running Center Website using the Virtual Race Time Submission FormResults must be in by October 4th at 6 pm.
