Return of Pittsfield Track and Field Games

Mayor Bianchi, along with the Pittsfield Department of Community Development Recreation Program, has announced the return of the Pittsfield Track and Field Games.  The City of Pittsfield has teamed up with Berkshire Lightning, the Berkshire Running Center and the YMCA, for this FREE program which introduces and teaches youth the basics of track and field including warm ups and several running and field components.

Mayor Bianchi said, “This is another great opportunity to go outdoors and be active.  This summer we have already offered two free youth based events: Just for Kicks and Sticks for Kids, as well as providing summer playground monitors and the family friendly outdoor movies at Clapp Park.  I encourage everyone to take advantage of these free programs.  They are put on by professionals and offer great venues to try something new. A big thanks to all the programmers participating in the Track and Field Games for the third year.”

Pittsfield Track and Field Games will take place Saturday, July 26, 2014 for children ages 6 to 14 at the Taconic High School Track, 96 Valentine Road. Registration and warm ups will begin at 9:00 am with events beginning at 9:30 am.
