Runners Beat the Cold at the Frostbite

Runners Beat the Cold at the Frostbite

GREEN RIVER– Members of the community braved the cold weather to run and walk in the Frostbite 5K, 10K, and 1 mile family run on Saturday morning in Green River.

The participants gathered at Expedition Island where the race both started and finished. They registered inside the pavilion to get out of the cold, and they could also enjoy some refreshments while inside.

Five minutes before the race started at 9:30 am, everyone gathered at the start line. The race went over the bridge and down the greenbelt along the icy river.
