Lovettsville’s Berserkle on the Squirkle is back and prepped to exhaust, freeze and bring residents together.

The town will host its annual 5K fun run around the Squirkle in the Town Square starting at 11 a.m. New Year’s Day.

Residents are invited to show up at 10 a.m. to register and run the 16-lap race dressed in costumes for a chance to win prizes. Participants are also encouraged to bring Christmas gifts they didn’t particularly like to be re-gifted as prizes for the event.

To help plan, set up or coordinate the event, email Town Councilman Matt Schilling at
