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, 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 .

The 2020 Feaster Five Road Race is the largest Thanksgiving Day road race in Massachusetts. Since 1988, the Feaster Five has drawn tens of thousands of participants annually who take part in the 5k or 5 miler walk/run. This race brings together the community and beyond for a fun filled morning of running miles and consuming plenty of pie. It is a longstanding tradition of many families to participate in the race each year.

The Feaster Five Road Race is hosted by the Merrimack Valley Striders, a 400+ member running organization founded in 1979. Proceeds from the race benefit the Striders’ high school scholarship fund, local charities, and initiatives in the surrounding communities.
