Downtown, Asheville, NC
3rd annual 5k through the streets of Downtown Asheville, NC on New Years Day 2017. Come run or crawl your way to completing your first new year’s resolution, or two.
The 2016 Frostbite was spectacular, a few items I loved: 1. Live 17 piece band, they played before, during, and after the run 2. Kids run a mile and finish at the adult time-line before we started 3. The support and guidance along the route 100% consistent 4. Encouragement at the home stretch was appreciated 5. Post race treats were nutritious and healthy, no junk food 6. The youngsters were recognized before adult awards. 7. I felt like I was a member of the LPC family while on-site Thank you LPC and Daphine Kirkwood, Race Director. Look forward to next year. <3 <3 <3
