ADAMS, Mass. -- In its first year hosting the River Valley Athletic League cross country championships, the teams from BArT Charter were hospitable.   The course at the Greylock Glen? Slightly less so.   “We definitely have the hardest 5K course in the county, I think,” Berkshire Arts and Technology coach Bennjamin Griffin said on Wednesday afternoon. “There’s 550 feet of elevation gain, and there are four significant climbs on it. I think some of the kids come in a little underprepared if they’re from other schools.”   That cannot be said of individual champions Mac Sloan-Anderson of Greenfield’s Four Rivers and Delaney Bullock of

Weyessa “Ace” McAlister is making a big impact on the Trinity College men’s cross country team this fall.   The 2015 Monument Mountain graduate, who did a post-graduate year at Northfield Mount Hermon, placed 11th for the Bantams on Saturday at the Connecticut College Invitational in Waterford, Conn.   His 8-kilometer time of 25 minutes, 11 seconds was about a minute off the pace set by the meet’s winner. But McAlister finished 28 places ahead of the next member of his Trinity team, which finished in the middle of the field, ninth out of 20 schools.   Earlier this season, the Great Barrington resident was named one of the school’s Bantams of the

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Natural Resources Council envisions a day when one can walk through a network of trails to each and every town in the Berkshires.   The organization has been working for the last couple years to do just that. The organization has raised $4.25 million toward the creation and maintenance of such a network.    "It is sort of a counterpart to the Appalachian Trail," President Tad Ames said, explaining that the network will allow someone to travel on foot the length of Berkshire County, stopping in at towns, staying a local hotels, while not having to carry food for a long trip.   The concept is something that's been done

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Lauren R. Stevens has been traipsing through the Berkshire mountains for more than 40 years.

And he wants others to find the same joy has in exploring the trails that weave throughout the county.
