You Make Our Hearts Race! 10th Annual Run for the Hills

During this holiday when love is in the air, we all feel like shouting out about our deepest feelings. And so we will!

We are so grateful to you for making the 9th Annual Run for the Hills 5k/10k Race on October 6, 2019 an overwhelming success! 140 runners and walkers enjoyed the beautiful fall foliage in support of land conservation in Great Barrington while families and kids had a fun run on the soccer field at Simon’s Rock. A record number of local businesses as well as 27 incredible volunteers helped us to make this event possible.

As a participant, you played an integral part in the Run for the Hill’s success— without you hitting the pavement, this event wouldn’t exist! The race, which began as a fundraiser and promoter for the work of the Great Barrington Land Conservancy, has blossomed into a family event that encourages exercising and experiencing the outdoors. 

This October will be our 10th Annual Run for the Hills Race and you can help us to celebrate this momentous occasion! We are doubling our efforts to grow this event so that more families, runners, and walkers can take advantage of this event as a way to spend quality time together outdoors and to reach their own personal health goals.

Do you have any ideas about how we can make our race even better? Are you a member of a running club? Please reach out to us at

Happy Valentine’s Day!
