Cancellation of the In-Person Frosty 5K as of 12/15/2023 5:54 PM 

We have made the very difficult decision, for the safety of our participants, race crew, volunteers, and law enforcement on the course, to cancel the 2023 Frosty 5K due to the threat of severe weather.

All participants will be transferred to the Virtual Frosty 5K.  

We will be having a Celebration of Frosty on Monday, December 18th, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Gold Coast Eagle Tasting Room,  7051 Wireless Ct, Sarasota, FL 34240  More details will be posted and emailed.  

We will be emailing participants and utilizing the urgent text notifications for those who opted in to that feature for the cancellation.

Race Swag

Your registration includes a great looking, locally printed, custom tech race shirt in gender specific sizes.  2023 we have a "pearl gray" long-sleeve for all our Adult Size shirts.  Sorry but it isn't available in youth sizes so Youth Size shirts will be a white, short-sleeve tech shirt.

Custom finisher medal for all participants! 

The traditional Frosty 5K porcelain ornament awards for our award winners!  

Results & Awards

The Frosty 5K is chip-timed and participants can opt-in to receive their own finish time and preliminary results to their phone or email as selected during registration.  (Please allow a few minutes after you finish for the results to be "pushed" from the finish line equipment, bounced around cell towers, arriving to RunSignUp then back to your device.)  Results will be available on RunSignUp and we will post the QR code link to view and search results online at locations around the post-race in addition to posting printed results on-site.  Please check to see that your finish and results were recorded and are correct before the Awards Ceremony.  

Awards will presented at the post-race (plus a costume contest!) but if you cannot stay for the awards, they will be available for pick up at Gulf Breeze Apparel in Venice during their normal business hours after the Frosty 5K.

We look forward to seeing our running friends and hope you’ll join us!
