The Frost Bite River Run, the first MRA sanctioned event of 2018, is two weeks away. This year’s event is Sunday, January 28th with a 10:00 a.m. start time.

This fun run is part of the Winter Classic events held at Riverview Community Centre in January and February. All net proceeds raised by the run go to support programs and activities at the community center. I hope you will consider supporting our community center and this race by registering here… https://www.registrationlogic.com/secure/Register.aspx?E=2628

This year, in celebration of our fifth year of hosting the Frost Bite River Run, we are holding five mile and five kilometer runs from the Riverview Community Center to The Forks via Churchill Drive and the Red River Mutual Trail.

The section of the RRM Trail from the Forks to Churchill Drive recently opened and it is in the best shape I’ve ever seen it. While I can’t guarantee that the weather or the trail conditions will be perfect on race day, the long range forecast suggests some pretty sweet winter running conditions – about -15c, overcast with light winds from the north north west (at your back for the run to the finish).

This year runners will enjoy a complimentary pre-run winter warm up bowl of oatmeal, fruit and juice, as well as a post-run chili con carne lunch accompanied by a warming Bailey’s and coffee or hot chocolate (18+)!

We have lots of great draw prizes, some nice race swag, great volunteers, fun route and sweet finisher medals for every participant. Even though this is a fun run, we provide chip timing for all our participants and do our darnedest to measure a pretty accurate course.

Registration is a perfectly reasonable $45.00 for runners ages 19 and older and $25.00 for runners 18 and under. MRA members receive a $3.00 refund at check in.

We’re looking forward to seeing you at the Frost Bite River Run. If you have any questions about the event please email racedirector@frostbiteriverrun.ca.
