The Berkshire Ultra Running Community for Service is hosting an ultra marathon from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 6, at Clapp Park to raise funds for Moments House, a nonprofit providing complementary care for cancer patients and their families.

The field boasts 107 runners from 16 different states, three provinces of Canada and one runner from France. Participants range in age from 12 to 77 with eight runners under the age of 16.

Many runners hope to run 35 to 40 miles in the eight hours allotted while elite runners hope to cover 60 miles in that time.
