WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Downtown Williamstown is gearing up for Cinco de Mayo, which falls on a Saturday this year, when runners, walkers and their dogs gather together for a race and benefit.

The 10th annual Humane Race will unite hundreds of people and their pets for a 5-kilometer run or 1-mile walk through the college town. Along the meandering route volunteers will cheerfully encourage the pounding feet and paws onward as they navigate the course to the finish line, where the festivities begin.

A schedule of events follows:

► Early registration begins at 8:30 a.m. at 16 Water St.

► Children’s book reading at 9 a.m. at Water Street Books.

► Race commences at 10 a.m. from in front of the Browns on Spring Street.

► The race event ends at about noon at the Municipal Parking Lot on Spring Street.

The race begins with all participants receiving goody bags filled with yummy treats and treasures for themselves and their canine companion. The first 150 registered runners/walkers will receive a commemorative Cinco de Mayo T-shirt, displaying a playful pup on the front. The running pack includes solo runners and dogs with their owners.

A highly anticipated prize is the Ipad 2. To qualify for the raffle, you have to raise $500 or more in pledges. 

Over the years the Humane Race has raised more than $100,000 for the Berkshire Humane Society.

For more information, course map or to register visit the Humane Race website or to contact Alix or Brian Cabral at info@humanerace.org or 413-441-3677. See photos last year's race here.
