A Running Series Like No Other
Fun, Fun, Fun, Fun. The Good Times 5K Running Series runs every Tuesday night at 7:00 from the back patio at Hooksllide Kelly's, 19 Merrimack St , in downtown Lowell, MA. All races begin Post Office Square behind the George Ayotte Parking Garage (just 2/10th of a mile from the Hookslides) and ends in the same location. The series will feature a different "theme" each week. Runners compete for weekly prizes based on the theme that evening. Runners will also be competing for weekly points that will be counted towards overall series awards (see series scoring). An awards ceremony will be held each week starting at 8:00 PM at Hookslides.

Venue Alert

AS OF THIS TUESDAY, JULY 22ND, WE ARE BACK TO HOOKSLIDE KELLY'S! TIME TO PARTY ON THE PATIO! Please spread the word. 19 Merrimack Street, Around back (on the patio). Due to circumstances beyond our control, Finn's is no longer able to host us for the race series. We hope this move will be an easy one, and things should work as they did last summer. However please keep in mind that Hookslides is not opened for general business. They plan a formal opening before the weekend of the Lowell Folk Festival. They have graciously offered their patio and the use of center bathrooms to us. We will have New England Runner Magazine as our sponsor this week, with mag scripts as prizes for our "special" winners of the Reverse The Course 5k theme this week!

Please email me if you have any questions: jessica@yankeetiming.com

Same registration opening: 5:30pm, same race time: 7:00pm, same post race awards/PR pool/PR awards--- about 8:00pm

Walkers Welcomed
The Good Times welcomes walkers. Walkers leave with the runners. We encourage you to start in the back. All walkers are timed and we track your PRs making you eligible for our World Famous Mylie. However our finish line closes down at 8:00 PM so put a little zip in your walk.

Set a Course PR
& Win Our World Famous Mylie Medal

If you set a course PR we will reward you with our "World Famous" Mylie Medal (see photo above). We have been tracking course PRs for the past eleven years. During that period over 7500 course PRs have been set. Last year we awarded over 1200 Mylie Medals for setting course PRs.

Finish All Ten and Win a Golden Mylie

The Golden Mylie is very similar ot our PR Mylie, however this 4-inch round metal medalion is 1/4" thick and gold plated. It is guaranteed the be the rave of the year. To earn a Golden Mylie you need to finish all ten races. This medal is beautifully crafted by Ashworth Awards of Attleboro, MA. Be the first in your nieghborhood to earn one of these keepsakes.

New England's largest medal. Run all 10 spring races and you'll be awarded one.

Divisional Awards

We award Mylie plaques to the top three finishers in each age division at the end of each series.

The series also features an accurately measured course, a digital clock at the finish, chip timing, weekly emailed race stats to each entrant, plenty of on street parking, a course with little traffic and weekly updates to this website that includes both results and occasionally photos.

In this series cumulative points will be totalled at the end. The top 3 finishers overall and top 3 in each age division (19 & under, 20 - 29, 30 - 39, 40 - 49, 50 - 59, 60 - 69, 70-79, 80 and over) will be awarded special series' awards. Points are awarded based on a relative merit for a performance based on the fastest runner. The winner receives 1000 points and lesser points are awarded to each finisher based on time. Points are computed by dividing a runners' time into the time of the first place finisher then multiplying by 1000. Weekly results will be posted immediately after each race at Finns and posted on Cool Running the next morning. An awards ceremony will be held at 8:00 PM each week at Finns, 78 Merrimack Street, Lowell, MA.

The Lowell environment offers something for every foot's taste. Give in to the lure of the City's ethnic charm and the rich history by joining us for a run from Finns , located in the heart of the Lowell National Historical Park. Run by the refurbished brick mill buildings where the mill girls once worked, lived, ate well, led chaste lives, and probably logged few miles. The road started here for Jack Kerouac. This is where Whistler painted his poor mom in a chair after she complained about his odorous running shoes. Here is where Ed McMahon proved that anyone could acheive wealth and fame in America and where the guys were first awe struck by those Bette Davis eyes.
