10-Week Virtual

Winter Series

Times are different and we've never done this before, but here we go... following up our Fall Series, we're here to put on the FIRST-EVER Good Times Winter Series! We're back with 10-weekly challenges, an expanded running window (Sun-Wed) and a BRAND-NEW Snowman Mylie finishers medal for all those dedicated runners completing the entire 10-week series! Plus, if you earn your Mylie we'll throw in an ugly sweater Koozie too!


Best of all, it's still all virtual. So whether you're here in New England, Tennessee, California, or across the globe... you can join in on all the fun!

Series Info

Winter Series - it's s-NO-w Problem!

Plan Your Route  //  Lace 'Em Up  //  Run Your Race  //  Collect the Mylie

Why not just complete the quartet and run in our winter series too! The 10-week series will start on Sunday, December 6th. Each week we will have a different challenge or theme, these are a fun way to still hand out weekly awards, but they are completely optional and not required for participation. All you need to do it plan your own 5K route, lace up those running shoes, complete the weekly 5K, submit your results, and you're well on your way to the first-ever Winter-inspired Snowman Mylie, if you complete all 10 weeks! Also, if you earn your Mylie, we'll throw in an ugly sweater Good Times koozie!

Here's how it will work:

Sign up to register for the 2020 Virtual Winter Series.  If you register after 12/9/2020 you will not be eligible for the Snowman Mylie medal & koozie, but can still win weekly prizes!

Join the 'Good Times Series' Club on Strava to stay connected and cheer on other Good Times runners. 


**Expanded Running Time**  Run outside, run inside, hit the road or the treadmill. Plan your route and run the weekly 5K anyday Sunday through Wednesday of that week (Week 1 is December 6-9)


Submit your weekly results before 11:59pm each Wednesday night online at >>


Weekly results and challenge award winners will be announced on Friday mornings. Results from all weekly 5K's will be available on the iResultsLive platform and weekly challenge award winners will be announced on the Good Times 5K Series Facebook page.

Is it different? Yes. Will it be just as fun? Absolutely... and a side benefit, if you used to run the Good Times Series, but moved away, it's time to run it again! Remember to share your photos throughout the series on social media by using #WinterGoodTimes20

5K Schedule


So what do we do for Winter themes and challenges? We'll be brining back some favorites from the spring and summer series. These weekly challenges are simply to add a sense of competition as we will be awarding prizes to lucky runners.. You can pick and choose which challenges you'd like to do, as they are not required to earn your Snowman Mylie.


All runs must be completed between Sunday and Wednesday of race week and results submitted before 11:59PM on Wednesday night.

Week 1  //  Dec. 6-9

Season of Giving Run


We start the series by getting your run in and giving back. Run to the grocery store to buy some canned goods, run to the food bank to drop off some donations, whatever you do let's kick off the Winter Series by giving back. Show us how you got your run in and gave back!​

Prizes awarded to our five (5) favorite/most unique photos using #WinterGoodTimes20 on social media.

Week 2  //  Dec. 13-16

8K's of Hanukkah


8K=4.97 miles, so let's call it 5 miles. Your challenge this week is to run 5 miles, either in one run, or split it up over a few. When inputing your results let us know if you took the 8K challenge, of if you just completed your weekly 5K. You'll still get Mylie credit if you only do a 5K distance.

Prizes awarded to five (5) randomly selected runners who completed the 8K challenge.

Week 3  //  Dec. 20-23

Santa is Coming to Town


And all of us are busy decorating their houses all around the country. Think of this as the 'Say What?' scavenger hunt challenge, but with holiday decorations! Snap those photos/videos of the most decked out houses you run by.
