Frostbite 5K and 10K
Snowflakes fly and frosty temperatures blanket Wyoming, but in the midst of it all, the pristine Green River creates a dream-like atmosphere within the City. Join us for the 2017 Frostbite 5K & 10K and 1 Mile Family Fun Run. Green River's Expedition Island, home to the historic Powell Expedition and a National Historic Landmark, will be the starting and finish location of our run on Saturday, February 25, 2017. 

The fun kicks off on Friday evening with bag pickup and a GRHS Senior Class Fundraiser Soup Cook-Off.  Then Saturday will be the big race which is followed up by a Pancake Brunch, hosted by Boy Scout Troop 312. The brunch, registration and awards will be held in our warm pavilion building. The Pavilion will be open for the entire event, providing a place to eat and stay warm while the race is taking place, so bring your entire family!
