$10 for Entry to the Old Farts 5K Race on Saturday, August 18 (Up to $20 Value)

The race starts at 8 a.m. at the Lowell Showboat and embarks on a fast 5K course of roads and wooded trails. There are no age groups, and the top 10 male and female finishers are awarded commemorative whoopee cushions. Runners can register and pick up their race packets on Friday, August 17, from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. at the start line, or on Saturday morning from 7 a.m. to 7:50 a.m.

Old Farts Race

Despite the race’s assertion that, “the Old Farts course is no joke,” the 5K and full- and half-marathon event is still presented with quite a bit of levity. Top 10 finishers in the 5K, for instance, are awarded whoopee cushions for their efforts in a race known colloquially as the Who Cut the Cheese? 5K, and the full marathon crests a hill named after the actor and human punch line Chuck Norris. Amid this casual atmosphere, runners of all ages compete on wooded courses that are as beautiful as they are difficult. Hundreds of feet of elevation changes unfold as the course progresses through a mix of tree-lined trails, gravel roads, and pavement.
