Berkshire Running Center celebrates five years of being ‘Grand Central Station’ of running in the Berkshires

PITTSFIELD — Not long ago, a runner from anywhere in Berkshire County would have to travel an hour in either direction to find new equipment or apparel.

That was the niche that Kent and Shiobbean Lemme sought to fill five years ago when they started Berkshire Running Center. Now, in the summer of 2016, BRC is celebrating its fifth anniversary of becoming the centralized hub of running activity in Berkshire County.
