The last Frostbite race is on Saturday the 4th of February!!
9th January 2012
On Saturday night at the Way of Lights 5K Run at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Snow, Toolen's Running Start was responsible for only the timing/results. We were not responsible for the course layout. The course was changed so that people could leave the grounds without interfering with the runners/walkers.
However, there was a lot of confusion due to the loop course. I apologize for the confusion this may have caused and the effect of the results.
Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and enjoyed our 12 days of Christmas.
The Frostbite series is going strong with three races left and hopefully more good weather.
Watch out for a special notice for some sales coming up in the new year.
Have Happy and Safe New Year's!!!!
