About the Run:

  • The Jolly Poker Run is a benefit race for Berkshire Bounty which collects donated food as well as purchases food from markets, local farms and other sources to supply local food pantries.

  • Race Description:  The Jolly Poker Run is a race with a twist:  All runners will make stops at five stations on the running course to get a playing card.  The card will be given from the top of the deck so the runners don’t know what card they will receive.  Winners will be: the fastest 3 male and female finishers AND people who collect the best Poker hands.  Prizes will be gift cards to area restaurants and businesses.

  • Course Description:  The 5K course will start at the corner of Walker St and Kemble St across from the Lenox Community Center at 65 Walker Street.  Runners will go down Kemble Street and turn right onto Frothingham Crossing.  At the end of Frothingham Crossing turn right onto Old Stockbridge Road.  Follow Old Stockbridge Road all the way into downtown Lenox and turn right onto Walker Street.  The finish of the race will be at the same location as the start.  The roads are open to traffic so use caution and be aware of cars.  The race will use the wide sidewalk area all the way down Kemble Street, do not run on the road. Frothingham Crossing and Old Stockbridge Road do not have a sidewalk so run on the side of the road.  Use caution when crossing Walker Street to and from the Lenox Community Center.  Runners will bring their Poker cards to the Lenox Community Center to determine the best hands.

  • Race Packet Pickup and Start:  Race numbers can be picked up on Saturday morning from 8-9:30 at the Lenox Community Center.  The race starts at 10am.
