Loved the New Year's Day race
-enjoyed running the 5k right after the holidays; haven't done a New Year's Day race in a while and when I saw this one I registered immediately. Love the finishers' medal, heat blanket, baggage check, numbers, T-shirt was nice-but unfortunately did not receive one being a late registrant---look forward to it next year. Thankful for the volunteers along the course and keeping the streets clear of ice/snow. Post-race food and band were good. Thankful for the race director too with the emails leading up to the race and post-race emails! Will definitely back back from the 2nd Running of the Lowell 5k/10k race!
Very well organized and traffic control was excellent.
Nice flat course and with lots of post events to satisfy runners.
I agree with others that 2 loops are a mental challenge and I
could never do the 10k seeing the 5k finish line. But I did the 5k
and enjoyed the course. Thanks!
well organized race. tech shirt and hat was a nice incentive for signing up early. website although primitive was to the point and had all the necessary information. would run this race again. keeps one motivated during the binge eating and drinking of the holidays. thanks to the organizers and volunteers!!! nice job!
Great way to start out the new year. The race was very well organized, volunteers clearly visible throughout the entire course, and a fantastic post-race party. Looking forward to running it next year! Thank You!
great way to start the New Year!! I signed up early thinking it would be nice to stay in the area instead of driving to the Hangover Classic in Salisbury like i've done the past 2 years and I am so glad i did!! The hat, shirt and medal were great and i especially love the pink bubbly on the medal!! Volunteers, bag check and food were all wonderful!!
Definitely a do again race!!
This was a great event ! The amount of planning and attention to detail, not to mention the great swag, was extraordinary for a first-time event. The race went off on time, a clearly marked copurse (although the 10 K was 6.31 miles as per my garmin, and a bit longer according to some other GPS devices), and speedy results. The weather gods must have taken note and smiled down upon us. Nice T shirts, hats, medals and plaques.
Only tiny gripe was no vegetarian option to eat afterwards (you'd think they'd at least offer some pasta without chicken ). Oh well, 4 bars and a beer or two make a great post race meal.
This was my first 5K run, and I loved it. This event was very well organized and I was very impressed. My 4 year old daughter loved the medal, she was glad I got it for her! I would definitely participate in this race again next year. Maybe the 10K......Hmmmm....good goal to set for myself!!!!
very well organized- Quality shirt- plenty of volunteers- parking was plentiful-the part of the course along the river was great. My wife ran the 5K I ran the 10K we plan on doing this again next year.
Loved the event!!! Great shirts, but wished they had kid's sizes. 9 members of my family ran the race and we had a great time. Well organized, plenty of parking, and good food and entertainment. Definitely plan on doing it again next year.
It was a tremendously well run event. I'm being repetitious, but I was extremely satisfied with the email notifications, tech shirt, parking. Not able to comment on food and band. Needed to be back home in RI for a New Year's Day family dinner. Would love to come back to run the 10K (I did the 5K).
Excellent race! For a first time event, this was very well organized. Baggage check was a nice addition, given the distance to parking. Course was very good. Post race food was excellent. I plan to return next year. Thanks!
