Race Preview: 2019 Fall Creek Run Around (Lowell)

The 2019 Fall Creek Run Around will be held on Sunday, May 5th – what better way to spend your Cinco de Mayo morning than on a beautiful run!? Hosted by Level 32 Racing, choose from a 20M, 15K, or 5K distance.

All three distances will run counter clockwise (against traffic) and start at 10:00AM. The 5K “is a challenging out and back” and the 15K is a point-to-point run (racers will be shuttled to the Cascara Campground to start). Both the 5k and 15k will be entirely on pavement and the 20 Miler is on 75% paved and 25% hard paved dirt roads. All races will finish at Winberry Park. For more info, check out the course maps on the website.

The 5K will have 1 aid station (mile 1.8), the 15K will have 3, and the 20M will have 7. Awards will be presented to the overall male and female finisher and top three in each group in all events.

All entries include a breakfast burrito from Chula’s on Franklin Blvd!
