Frostbite Results and Photos

Congratulations to everyone who came out for the Frostbite on Sunday. Nancy and I thank you for taking part in our race, whether you were a runner, a walker, some of both or you were part of our volunteer team.

Thanks to Hardybreed you can see the results of the 10 miler and review 687 photos from the event. Check out their postings on

Frostbite Registration and Packet Pick-up

If you registered for Frost Toes, stop by SportsCare on Chatham Road tomorrow (Friday) between 4 and 7 pm for packet pickup. We're happy to be able to offer a quality windshirt as the race shirt. We'll have registration forms for those of you who are doubting the weather and waiting to the last few days before making a commitment! Registration will also be available at FitClub on the day of the race from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. Race day calls for cold and clear, temperatures in the high 20s to low 30s, maybe even some sun! Hopefully, there won't be wind on the day of the race, but if it is windy, I know you'll all be ready for the challenge. We've got a large group of Frost Toes who've spent many weeks in training getting ready for this race. I know you're all ready because I've seen the commitment and dedication to the training. Your race is finally almost here! Even Roger ran those hills and did that speed work!

Join us on Sunday, December 7 for the 45th Annual Frostbite Festival and get your frost on! It will be a great time and we've got coffee, hot chocolate and plenty of food to refuel after the race.
I hope we see you at the starting line!

Linda and Nancy
