Join us for the 14th Annual Frosty Five Run.  Enjoy the scenic cross country style course that starts at Studebaker Park Pavilion and follows the River Greenway Trail along the Elkhart River  The 5K and 5M courses will now all be almost entirely on paved trails.  The City of Elkhart has paved the path for multi-use (bikes and running) and made some improvements to the drainage so that flooding/freezing is less likely to occur.

We will be posting photos on Facebook to keep you apprised of the conditions as we get closer to the date.

February is usually the month when the winter blues might try to set in, so come out for some fun and camaraderie! You won't feel the cold with your running mates by your side! We'll have a fire going in the cabin to stay cozy before and after the race.  There are large restrooms, so you can bring a dry top to change into there. Plenty of parking at the park. 

ENTRY FEE. Entry fee for the race, which includes chip timing, awards, and post race refreshments is $25.00. Long sleeve, buttery soft shirts are optional and an additional $15.00.  The shirt  color is Royal Frost this year.  Vintage shirts are available onsite for $10.
