PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Expect delays Thursday morning on West Street due to MountainOne Thankful 5K road race.
The eighth running of the MountainOne Thankful 5K currently has more than 400 registered walkers and runners to take to the road on Thanksgiving morning at 9:00AM from Berkshire Community College.
Drivers are asked to be aware of the increased activity along the half mile stretch from Meadow Ridge Ave to Berkshire Community College. Online registration for the event closes at 5pm on Tuesday, Nov. 21 at www.zippyreg.com. In store registration will be held at Berkshire Running Center on Wednesday from 12pm-5pm. There is no day of registration although pre registered runners can pick up their bib the morning of the race from 7:30-8::30AM.
The 5K course will start on West Street just past the college and lead the attendees through the parking lots of the campus and then will be out on West Street between the college and onto Meadow Ridge Avenue. Once the runners turn down Woodland Ave they will return and follow the course back to West St and then finish in the parking lot of the Patterson Field House.
Pittsfield Police Department will be on site to also provide support for a safe passage for all participants. The Berkshire Running Foundation also left flyers in the mailboxes of the homes that the 5K passes. Expectations are the race will be completed shortly after 10:00AM.
