9th Annual Frost Bite River Run-Virtual

January 1 - January 28




Virtual 5 Mile & 5k

The Frostbite River Run is a fundraiser in support of programming and activities at Riverview Community Centre. The Frostbite River Run is held as part of the Riverview Winter Classic; a series of outdoor events held in January and February at the community centre that embody the spirit of winter sports in our neighbourhood.

COVID-19 Update:

The Frost Bite River Run events will all be virtual in 2022. In consideration of the health and safety of our runners and volunteers the Race Committee has made the difficult decision to shift our event to virtual participation only.

The rapid spread of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 and uncertainty around future public health restrictions make holding an in-person event far too risky for all involved.

We managed to host a very successful virtual Frost Bite River Run in 2021 and believe that transitioning to a virtual event in 2022 is the responsible thing to do.

Runners who have already registered for the in-person event will be contacted by the Race Director.

The Riverview Community Centre will be celebrating 10 years of hosting the The Frost Bite River Run in 2023. We look forward to bringing our wonderful runners together for an amazing 10th anniversary celebration on January 22, 2023!

Registration fees for the virtual event are $25.00. Participants have until January 28th to run their distance and upload their finish times to the Frost Bite River Run Race Roster page…

The Frost Bite River Run is special for a whole lot of reasons…

  • It’s happening in the deepest and darkest of winter months. Nothing says Winnipeg-tough like a winter run on a frozen river in January.
  • Choose your distance – 5 miles or 5 kilometres.
  • All net-proceeds support Riverview Community Centre programming and activities!

Many thanks to our main sponsors – Chaeban Ice Cream and A-Phase Electrical.
