Frost Fever Frozen Frolic • January 23, 2016
Thank you to the runners and walkers who came out for the 25th annual Frost Fever Frozen Frolic! What a great morning it was to be outside enjoying our riverfront trail system.

Max Hill took some ahh-mazing  photos of the event. Scroll through, find yours, and post it to your favorite social media with #frostfever25. 

Thank you for your patience while we compiled the results. There was an issue with the computer timing system on race day and, unfortunately, we have no times. We apologize for the mishap and have taken measures to prevent this from happening in the future. If you happen to know your time, please email and we’ll start filling in the blanks! Thank you for your help and understanding. We would like to congratulate our 1st Place Champions in each category.  Placement Results By Division
