We're back! If getting (or staying) in shape is one of your New Year's resolutions, don't miss the 37th annual Frosty 5K New Year's Day race hosted by the Guilford Rotary Club. The event includes a certified 5K run, 2-mile health walk, and a Kids Fun Run, which all begin on the historic Guilford Green. The course will take you past many iconic sights in this celebrated coastal New England town - the green, marina, and fairgrounds.

Proceedings on race day will be slightly different than previous years to ensure everyone's safety yet still offer the opportunity for participants to enjoy a live social event together.

Registration will only be possible via this online platform and with it you will be able to register until 10:30 am on race day, January 1, 2022. All registered participants will be able to collect bib/race packets from soundRUNNER Branford ahead of race day, or on the Guilford Green prior to race start. Immediately following the race, refreshments and award presentations will take place on the green subject to prevailing weather conditions.
