Thank you Pittsburgh for your support. We are looking forward to a frigid and fun event this Saturday.
The 16th Annual Frigid 5 Miler will be a race like none before it. New this year and one time only, - YOU WILL RUN THE COURSE IN REVERSE AND FINISH DOWN THE GIANT HILL!
For one year only, we will be starting and finishing at the Olympia Shelter parking lot on Pearce Mill Road and running the course in reverse. Runners will head out on Pearce Mill Road, make the left turn onto North Ridge Drive after passing the boathouse. They will then climb the 2.5 miles to the lodge and water tower before roaring down the fast DOWNHILL FINISH! How awesome is that!
All runners will receive a custom finishers medal and great race SWAG as always.
As we continue to navigate the new era of road races, some changes have been made to this years race. Please review below so that everyone understands this years new set up.
Thank you to everyone who will be coming out to participate in the race and we hope to return to normal operations for the Frigid 5 in 2022.
