Why Run in the 2018 Frosty 10K/ 5K?

Where else can you find a 10k in Wake Forest? You can't! So come on out and warm up with a great, festive run. Enjoy a frosty 6.2 or 3.1 mile run that winds through some Heritage neighborhoods.

** Both events are dog-friendly (please keep your dogs on a leash) and stroller-friendly! **

In case you need another reason, this is one of the primary fundraising events benefitting the
Tri-Area Ministry Food Pantry, and everyone who participates can make a difference by helping to provide food for families who might not otherwise have a meal on their table.

Join us Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018 (start time 8:00am)

The THIRD annual Frosty Run 10k and 5k is the ONLY 10K in Wake Forest! This is the perfect winter run - a fun event made just for you. The course is perfect for all runners. It includes flat roads, trails, a few hills, neighborhoods, and aid stations to keep you hydrated.

Course

The 10K course is USATF Certified and Sanctioned with a 5K course out-and-back on the first 1.55 miles of the 10K route. (Check out the course map here.)

The run starts and ends in front of Gatehouse Tavern in Gateway Commons and will conclude with a post-race party including a bounce house, coffee, and snacks for everyone.

On the route you will have three aid stations at approximately miles 1.5, 3, and 4.7.

Please Donate During the Race Day Food Drive

The race benefits the Tri-Area Ministry Food Pantry. They will bring their box truck and will be accepting donations. Please don't just clean out your pantry and bring all the things you don't want... old pickles and olives. The next time you are in the grocery store, just grab a can of pasta sauce and a box of noodles. 

See here for a list of food needed to feed local families and to keep the shelves stocked. Bring food on Friday to packet-pickup, or race morning where the Tri-Area Ministry truck will be set up for collection.
