Frosty 5K - In Person, Live Event

$35 8:00AM EST - 10:30AM EST Happy to be having a live, in-person Frosty 5K. Different from past Frosty 5K's as we work within the approved Reactivation Plan to have our in-person Frosty 5K event at Twin Lakes Park

Virtual Frosty 5K

$35 If you can't join us in person, keep your Frosty streak alive. Invite friends, family and your co-workers to do the Frosty 5K virtually with you.

The Frosty 5K is back for the 12th year!  Saturday, December 18, 2021.  Starting and finishing at Twin Lakes Park, Sarasota, through the adjacent neighborhood.  We will be using the same wide-open road course as the past three years, no grass or paths, all asphalt surfaces for a smooth, fast course. Runners and walkers of all levels are welcome. 

If you can't join us in-person, you can register for the Virtual Frosty 5K and still get your Frosty on virtually anywhere!  And do it any time between December 11th and December 27th to submit your own Virtual Frosty 5K results online.

COVID-19 Precautions

If you test positive or develop symptoms of COVID-19 or otherwise become ill within 14 days of the event, we request that you not come to the Frosty 5K.  Please notify us before the event and we will work with you to transfer your registration to someone outside your household or change your registration to the Virtual Frosty 5K.

Temperature checks will be conducted as you arrive on-site and if yours exceeds 100.4 you will be asked to leave and automatically transferred to the Virtual Frosty 5K so you can submit your own virtual race results.  

Please do not bring guests or spectators to the race area.  We normally welcome everyone but this time everyone in your party should be a registered participant.  On-site registration will not be available.

You will not need to wear a mask during your run or on your way to the start line.  However, you will need to wear a mask or face shield to pick up your race packet and at other times around the venue when not able to appropriately distance from those outside of your household.

Post-race refreshments will be a grab-n-go snack bag along with water, Coke or Diet Coke.

The Frosty 5K is chip-timed by Durti Timing and participants will receive their own net/chip time to their phone or email as selected during registration.  To help with proper distancing and avoid crowding, no printed results will be posted on-site and there will not be the traditional awards.  Afterwards results will be emailed and posted on RunSignUp.

We are taking precautions that will include ensuring soap is available in the restrooms, hand-sanitizer in the race area, volunteers wearing face coverings and gloves (as appropriate) and frequently touched surfaces will be wiped with disinfectant wipes during the event.

A reminder of the CDC guidelines for your own safety:

  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Wear a mask when social distancing is difficult
  • Cover your cough or sneeze
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, mouth with unwashed hands

We look forward to being able to see our running friends once again and hope you’ll join us!
