|Frozen Feat 5k and 10k to benefit Special Olympics|
Runners and walkers of all shapes and sizes are welcome to participate in the 3rd Annual Frozen Feat 5k and 10k on Saturday, Feb. 13, but you might want to wear an extra pair of socks.
The Lithia Frozen Feat 5k and 10k, being held in conjunction with Winterfest, is a race put on by members of the local running club called “Red River Runners Grand Forks.” Entering its third year, the race that benefits Special Olympics Grand Forks has drawn over 150 participants each year. This year, organizers are hoping to break 200.
You may enter either the Frozen Feat 5k run/walk (3.1 miles), or the 10k run (6.2 miles). In honor of Valentine’s Day, runners may also participate with their sweetheart as a “lovebirds” team. Two-person lovebirds teams can enter either the 5k or the 10k (must be the same race), and at the finish line, their times are added together for one combined time. The lowest combined time among all the Lovebirds teams will win a Valentine’s Day prize pack.
Registration will be open online at www.active.com through Feb. 12. You can also register on the day of the event, starting at 8 a.m., from the Grand Forks Herald Community Room. Use the alley entrance (located on 4th street).
The race will begin at 10 a.m. from the Grand Forks Herald building. Runners will receive a race t-shirt, a finisher medal and door prizes will be given away throughout the day. The top three men and women for each race will get a custom designed Frozen Feat trophy. A bake sale will be going on throughout race day and post race food and water will be available for participants. For more information, log on to www.frozenfeat.com
