Pittsfield: Ultra-marathon to celebrate vegan lifestyle


The inaugural Vegan Power 50K, an all vegan ultra-marathon running race, will take place at 7 a.m. Saturday, June 14, at the Pittsfield State Forest.

Sponsored by Berkshire Ultra Running Community for Service and many other regional sponsors, all profits will be donated to Farm Sanctuary.

The 31 mile trail race celebrates the power of a plant-based diet to decrease the rate of climate change, increase one’s health as well as increase awareness of animal suffering and death.
