As you prepare to run in the New Year – we wanted to provide some updated information to help you start the year on the right foot! Due to the extreme temperatures, we are altering our Race Day Schedule slightly to shorten the event for our participants and our volunteers. Please review updated information.
We are still hosting the truly CHILLY 5k! However, for the safety of our kiddos, we have made the decision to cancel the 1-mile Frozen Fun Run for Monday, 01.01.2018. We did not want to disappoint our parents or the kids, but we also felt it was important to put their safety first. Shirts and participation medals will still be available. Medals and shirts may be picked up at the Registration Table on race day from 10am-11am, or we will also have the extra shirts and Fun Run medals at our front desk starting Tuesday 01.02.2018.
