The Frozen Toes 5K & 15K Trail Run is perfect for runners looking to transition from a 5K or 10K to a longer distance OR for those who want to try their first trail running race. The singletrack trails of Kessler Mountain are technical in most areas, but the views are worth every step of the course! Post-race events include awards, prizes, and hot soup for participants! In addition to Male/Female Overall Finisher and Age Group awards, all participants will have a chance to win other prizes. Take a break from the pavement and give trail running a try!
