FREEZE Your Buns Run 5K - In Honor of David Freeze

David Freeze has been the long-time president of the Salisbury Rowan Runners. He has completed more than 90,000 running miles, plus 24 marathons including multiples at Boston, New York City and Jacksonville. He has also done marathons in Detroit, Montreal and London. David was the five-time top masters runner in North Carolina per the Tar Heel Tour series of events. He regularly writes running and fitness related articles for the Salisbury Post and other publications. With his help, Salisbury achieved national status as a “Runner Friendly Community,” one of about 50 communities across the country to receive this honor. Rowan County hosts about 25 races of varying distances annually, including the regionally recognized Winter Flight 8K/5K and fun run. Winter Flight is the oldest 8K and the fourth oldest race of any distance in North Carolina.  

All proceeds from this 5K will benefit Winterfest!  Come participate in the 5K and join in the community fun and holiday spirit!
