If you love to run, the Good Times 5k Running Series in Lowell is a fun way to get a healthy work out! On Tuesday evenings at 7pm throughout the year, runners compete in 5k road races in downtown Lowell. Races change seasonally, and there are several races during each Series. Competitors come from the Merrimack Valley, Southern New Hampshire, and beyond.
Runners may sign up for each race online or at the beginning of the race course. Each week’s road race has a different theme, and theme-based prizes are awarded at the end of the race. Additionally, points are accumulated by runners each week, and season awards will be given at the conclusion of each Series.
All races begin in downtown Lowell on French Street near Lowell High School, and they end near Boarding House Park. At the conclusion of each race, an award ceremony will be held at Hookslide Kelly’s, located at 19 Merrimack Street.
