Event Description

GLRR is proud to announce the 2024 Angry Chicken Race Series. 

Race distance is 2.62 miles – a tenth of a marathon! – with runners going counter-clockwise (against traffic) on the loop portion of the course. 

The races will be each Tuesday evening starting at 7PM (early start at 6:45), from June 11th to August 13 (eight races).  Scoring will give 1000 points to the race winner, and everyone else a percentage of that based on their finish time. The first seven races will be scored, with prizes to the winners given out at Race 8 on August 13th.

Note: there will be no race the week of July 2nd and no race the week of July 30th.

The races begin and end at the S-curve at the entrance to the Riverwalk (at the end of River Place road).

Bib pick-up is on Tuesdays from 6:00 to 6:45 PM at Marx Running and Fitness, 118 Merrimack Street in downtown Lowell.

Cost is $10 per race when registering online (below) – $70 if you register for the whole series.  You register online at bib pick-up (QR scan code will be provided at Marx) for the same $10 price.  However, it’s $12 per race to register manually in-person using cash or check.

There will be a drawing after each race for prizes, and a small prize for the best costume.

Donations benefit Catie's Closet. Catie’s Closet is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides clothes, toiletries, and other basic essentials to students living in poverty right with thin their schools.  Free stores are set up in schools, giving children direct access to everything they need to attend class confidently.  For the final race on August 13th, we'll be collecting new and gently used youth/teen clothing, and full-sized toiletries.

Race results will be posted on the GLRR website
