Online registration at www.feasterfive.com available until 6 a.m. on Monday
ANDOVER, Mass. (November 20, 2014) – There’s still time to register for the Feaster Five Thanksgiving Day Road Race, as online registration will remain open for the popular race until 6 a.m. on Monday (Nov. 24).
A field of 10,000 is expected for this year’s 5-mile and 5K races at the Feaster Five, known throughout the region as a festive and fun holiday event where every finisher gets an apple pie from Table Talk.
After the online registration closes Monday morning, those who still want to participants will need to register in person at the Expo or on race morning at Woodworth Motors on Main St. in Andover.
Race organizers noted a host of new developments for this year’s event. On-site registration, bib, t-shirt pickup and the Feaster Five Expo – featuring sponsors, vendors and a variety of VIPS – will be held at a new location this year: the Sakowich Center at Merrimack College, on Monday and Tuesday (Nov. 24 -25) noon until 7 p.m. and on Wednesday (Nov. 26) noon until 6 p.m.
Running legends and inspirations, including Joan Benoit Samuelson, Bill Rodgers, the father-son Team Hoyt, John Young, Dave McGillivray and others, will appear at the Expo. A schedule of events will be posted on the race website.
In addition, the Start line for all three races this year will be Shawsheen Square, adjacent to Brickstone Square on Main Street in Andover. The Feaster Five Road Race’s 5-mile and 5K races will both begin at 8:30 a.m. and the Kid’s Fun Run will start at 7:45 a.m.
Also new are mobile lockers available in varying sizes with rentals starting at $5 on site, or they can be rented online in advance for a 20 percent discount at www.themobilelockerco.com. Small lockers are ideal for cell phones, keys and a layer of clothes while larger ones will fit bulkier items or a gym bag.
Proceeds from the race, which is hosted by the Merrimack Valley Striders and managed by DMSE Sports, will benefit the Merrimack Valley YMCA, Challenge Unlimited at Ironstone Farm, Bellesini Academy and the Merrimack Valley Striders.
