This year's Frozen Fiver was one to remember.
You know that this winter has been one for the books — and we were thrilled at the turnout of our 4th Annual Frozen Fiver that took place this past Sunday, February 10. We welcomed 102 racers championing either a 5km or 10km race.
With cool temperatures, but sunny faces, our 5k and 10k racers braved the chill to run or walk in support of FortWhyte Alive's environmental education programs.
The day was capped off with a celebration of community, complete with a toasty bonfire, s'mores, hotdogs and prizes for top finishers!
Thanks to all who came out to connect with nature, build community and get active — all in support of a good cause.
As always, we need to thank our amazing crew of FortWhyte Alive volunteers. We couldn't do what we do without these dedicated folks — they make the real magic happen!
Special thanks to this year’s supporter who provided a Active Techniques Release Treatment for your race day needs:
A big thanks goes out to Winnipeg Search and Rescue for ensuring all racers made it out of our trails safely.
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNERS!
