Description

Join us for the 35th running of the Frostbite 15K, one of Richmond Road Runners Club's signature events. The course is primarily an out-and-back, USATF certified route through Byrd Park and the neighborhoods bordering Byrd Park and Maymont. Much of the course is flat but there are some testy hills. We will have an indoor facility at Amelia Street School, which is at the course Start/Finish. Registration is limited to 1,000 runners. 

Frostbite 15K is a RRRC Club Championship Race for 2019

The first male and first female RRRC member in each respective division [Open Division (any age), Masters Division (age 40-49 on race day), Veterans Division (age 50 and over on race day)] will be awarded the designation of Club Champion for 15K distance for 2019. The basic rule: Championship Competition Awards are given only to RRRC members whose membership is active on the date of the race! Awards for the 2019 competition year will be presented at RRRC's Annual Banquet, which will be held in March 2020.
