The Jack Kerouac 5K, America's Beatnik Run and Pub Tour
[In Community]
The Jack Kerouac 5K, America's Beatnik Run and Pub Tour: Coming on September 28, this celebration of Lowell’s most famous native son will have a new, scenic course and an interesting and enjoyable post race visit—for those 21 and older—to some of the best pub establishments in downtown Lowell. Half of it is “On the Road” and half on the Merrimack River bike path. It begins at Kerouac Park on Bridge Street and ends at the Tsongas Center—an autumn run along the river in support of the Jack Kerouac Scholarship Fund. By Skip Cleaver.
