Virtual Feaster Five Road Races in 2020

This event has become a tradition for runners, walkers, families, and friends from all over the Merrimack Valley, New England, and beyond.  Focusing on our mission of Family, Fitness, and Fun, there is something for everyone – walkers, runners, young and old, so join the fun!

However, due to COVID-19, public health concerns have forced event organizers to cancel events that place groups of people in close physical proximity.  As we know, many long-standing road races have shut down the traditional road race offering since March 2020, and many have embraced a virtual race concept to keep the spirit of the race alive in 2020.

While we don't know if life will return to normal by Thanksgiving 2020, the uncertainty has led the Feaster Five Committee to transform this year's Feaster Five to the Virtual Feaster Five for 2020.

We have partnered with to present creative changes for this years event, including:

  • Three distances: 5K, 5-Mile, AND the Feaster Challenge 13K. (5K+8K), and the Kids Fun Run
  • Lower registration fees
  • Your can run your race anywhere from 11/23/2020 to 11/29/2020
  • You will receive your bib, race swag, and additional merchandise in the mail before 11/23/2020.
  • You can track your race using your own personal tracker (smart watch, smartphone) using your usual tracking software or the new Feaster Five app that you can download to your smartphone.
  • You upload your results upon completion of your event.
  • You will be sent the 2020 Feaster Five medal.
  • Additional commemorative merchandise.
  • And so much more!!

See for all the details.


Feaster Volunteers = Feaster Five Runners

Many volunteers are needed each year to make sure Feaster Five is a great experience for all participants.  That said, a virtual road race has fewer logistics to manage during registration and on race day, so we don't need the annual army of faithful volunteers tending to registration, expo, parking, water stops, etc.

That will free us up to Run the 2020 Virtual Feaster Five this year!  

So, please register to join your fellow club members with participants from across the globe for the 2020 Virtual Feaster Five!  

Encourage your friends and family join us for this unique version of Feaster Five!

Feaster Five "Couch to 5K" Training

An important tradition of the Feaster Five Road Race has been the Couch to 5k training program, which helps motivate and train race participants. In the past, this training program was held in Andover, MA, on the race course every Sunday for eight weeks.

Due to COVID-19, the Couch to 5k program will be held virtually on Sundays from October 4th to November 22nd, 2020, at 8-8:45AM via Zoom. This will offer event participants the unique opportunity to socialize with others over Zoom and share in the training traditions of the Feaster Five, warm up for your run and have any training questions answered. You will also be invited to a private Facebook group that will be focused on training.
