Fudgecicle 5K

The Fudgecicle 5K is held every Saturday morning in January and February, regardless of weather. No mere winter race, the Fudgecicle is a calling for the truly hard-core.

Under a weak sun faint enough to be flickering from a distant galaxy, the air warms to a bare two degrees…but it will take more than arctic cold to keep us indoors.

Come! Run with me now…

There are two ways to do this:

or…

2) you can immerse yourself in a full-screen HD video!

Fudgecicle 5K

The Fudgecicle 5K, hosted by the Greater Lowell Road Runners is a staple of the winter running scene north of Boston. Every Saturday in January and February–even when the temps dip below zero–the Fudgecicle draws runners from far and wide to run a flat 5K course, where we share the great camaraderie of running through the cold.

Come! Run with me now…
