Hosted by the Merrimack Valley Striders and managed by DMSE Sports, the Feaster Five Road Raceâ€™s 5-mile and 5K races are held each year on Thanksgiving morning, beginning near Brickstone Square on Main St. in Andover, Mass.
Proceeds from the race benefit Ironstone Farm, Bellesini Academy, the Merrimack Valley YMCA and the Merrimack Valley Striders.
The Feaster Five also features bands and music along the course, digital clocks posted at each mile, holiday refreshments after the race and a traditional Table Talk apple pie for all finishers. The race also provides ample free parking and a printed race program, courtesy of the Eagle-Tribune.
