Participant Info


Summit County weather varies in November so we recommend dressing in layers for this run. Don’t forget to pack a beanie, gloves, and Yaktrax (for extra grip in the snow/ice) if you have them!


We recommend any type of running or hiking shoe for this fun run. As mentioned above, portions of the course will not be plowed or shoveled and runners will pass through areas of packed snow. There are many options out there that provide additional traction for runners.


There is no designated parking area for this event. Frisco has parking available on Main Street as well as many side streets. Please carpool if possible and plan to arrive early to allow time to walk to the Old Community Center to pick up your bib/packet.
