The Penguin is Back!

The 27th Annual Lelia Patterson Center Frostbite Races (10k, 5k & 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk) presented by Willow Creek Dental takes place on Sunday, February 17, 2019 in Fletcher North Carolina starting at 1:45pm. Both 10k and 5k courses provide views of Hutch Mountain and are on hilly to challenging terrain, with some steep inclines on both the 10k and 5k courses. The moderately rolling 1 mile course, makes this premier racing event an opportunity for all running levels and ages. 1 mile fun run run participants will receive a finisher’s award!

NEW EXCITING ADDITIONS FOR 2019!

We are so excited! Drumroll please…. We have a new (2 Person) Partner Team Category! The 27th Annual Frostbite race is during Valentines week! So what better way to celebrate than to grab your sweetie and sign up for the new 2 person partner team competition. The 5k Sweetheart Team Competition and 10k Valentine Team Competition categories give runners the opportunity to run with your significant other. Team participants are eligible for additional prizes & awards. Select this option to be scored as an individual & also scored as a team. Team times will be combined and averaged for the fastest overall team times. Each team participant must register in the team category separately and then select the same team name to be paired up. Note: Both participants on the 2 person team must run in the same distance race. There is a 5k team option and a 10k team option.
