Frosty 5K

Course for 2018:  The new course got great reviews from the 2018 participants so it will stay the same as last year (click here to see the course map) starting at the same location from Twin Lakes Park, through the adjacent neighborhoods, and returning to the park, now all on finished, paved-surface roads, no more dense, dewy grass or crushed gravel paths.  Finishers medal for all finishers.  Then relax and join the festive post-race celebration beneath the trees at Twin Lakes Park.
