2013 Race For Justice

A great time was had by all at the 3rd Annual Race for Justice on November 9th! Runners, volunteers, MVLS staff, sponsors and spectators joined us for a morning of fun and perfect fall weather at the Lowell Elks Lodge. The 5 mile course took race participants through the peaceful Lowell Dracut Tyngsborough State Forest. At the awards ceremony following the race, the winners chose from a selection of prizes including farm-stand pies and donated gifts. The crowd stuck around for a trivia game in which participants vied for prizes. Race participants included local runners interested in a unique course and friends and supporters of MVLS. Visit our Race for Justice 2013 event page on facebook to see photos from the day.
