Overview

Mr. Frosty Has Turned 5 This Year!

2020 is the 5th year of the Wake Forest Frosty Run. Started in 2016 by Rebecca Warriner, the Frosty Run 5k/10k has grown into one of the most popular runs in Wake Forest. Find out why you don't want to miss out on the 5th year celebration.

Why Run in the 2020 Frosty 10K/ 5K?

Come out and warm up with a great, festive run. Enjoy a frosty 6.2 or 3.1 mile run that winds through Heritage neighborhoods.

** Both the 5k and 10k are stroller-friendly and dog-friendly (please keep your dogs on a leash) - don't leave your loved ones at home! **

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. 5, 2020 (start time 8:00am)

The FIFTH annual Frosty Run 10k and 5k is the fastest growing 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, pretty neighborhoods, and aid stations to keep you hydrated.

Course

Both courses are USATF Certified. The 5K course is an 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 face painters, 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 at 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.
