This race has become somewhat of a tradition for our family, as 2011 marks our third year participating.

It’s a wonderful way to begin the holiday because we’re supporting a great charity, spending time with family and friends, and burning some calories before the big meal! There’s still time to register for the 5K run/walk or 10K race, so please consider signing up. The race starts at 8:00 AM at 40 Old Ferry Road in Lowell.

Happy Thanksgiving!

    It was an awesome day for the run yesterday!! I ran with my 9 year old, though he is much faster then me. My goal was for both of us to finish which we did!!

      Amy, that’s great!! How wonderful that you ran with your son. I hope I can talk my boys into doing this someday when they’re older…
