The race, which is scheduled for Saturday, April 6 at Berkshire East, is five events: a 4.5 mile run, an 18 mile bicycle road ride, a two mile river paddle, a two mile adventure run and climb up, ski down leg. Bravehearts can do the entire course solo while registration is also open for those who want to compete in teams of 2-5 people. 

Discounted registration ends on March 17 while discounted entry fees for family teams and entrants under 19 go until the day of the race. 

There will raffle prizes for the winners in each category. Online registration is available at BikeReg.com. Volunteers are needed. This year’s benefactor is the Good Neighbors Food Pantry in Charlemont.
