Back for a 5th year!  We are excited to announce that the MELTFEST 5K will be kicking off the start to the 5th annual Meltfest celebration.  Meltfest is held the first Saturday in SPRING.  For 2018 this is going to be Saturday, March 24, 2018. 

Similar to years past, the event starts and finishes at the historic Prairie Street Brewhouse while taking runners and walkers through multiple historic districts of downtown Rockford.  The race kicks off at 10:00 a.m.  

After the race, stay for a day of free festivities including market and food vendors, kid activities, live music, and a bunch of other fun surprises. Follow us on Facebook to learn more details as the event draws nearer.

Participants receive a commemorative shirt, get to enjoy the post race snack-table, and get to lay claim to a free Rockford IceHogs ticket for that evening's game against the Chicago Wolves.  NOTE:  Lots of other fun surprises are in the works.  We truly think this is a 5K that you do not want to miss.

Enjoy winter but we look forward to seeing you in Spring at the 5th annual MELTFEST!
