Fudgcicle 5K Series

Jason - Fudgcicle

                     We run in all conditions

Founded in 1976 the Fudgcicle 5K Run is every Saturday morning at 8:00 AM from Tewksbury High School during the months of January and February. This series replaces the regular Saturday morning group runs.  It is a fast group run with lots of friends and you happen to get timed.

Fudge Time:     8 A.M.  (7:50 AM for early starters.) Saturday mornings rain, snow or shine – don’t call to see if it’s cancelled – we only cancel if the governor himself cancels it (which has happened – only once).

2018 Fudge Dates:   January 6, 13, 20, 27; February 3, 10, 17, 24
(Free! Twosome Race February 24th)
