Event Description

Hi Everybody!

We have the Sand Island Park trail reserved for December 4 for a FUN day of running and racing!

Please be a part of a new Holiday event in the Lehigh Valley. The race offers a nice course next to the river, a flat course to fast times, excellent shirt art and awards, post race hot chocolate. All athletes will also receive an oval THAW Sticker as well.

All athletes will receive a very cool Thaw shirt (see design at the top of this page) and a finisher's coffee cup for your favorite post race or morning beverage! We'll have plenty of hot chocolate available to test drive your new mug.

Check-in is at the Ice House for event check-in and post race festivities. 

Compete in the 5k/5 Mile Challenge and be eligible for more awards and receive a Thaw bar glass!

Both the 5k and 5 Mile races are on the trail. It is hard packed and flat. We'll have a aid station for the 5k at mile 1.25 (you'll also see at at mile 1.8 after the 5k turnaround). The 5 Mile race can sue the mile 1.25 aid station and also the mile 2 aid station, so that will have 5 mile runners passing an aid station at miles 1.25, 2, 3 and 3.75).

Walkers are welcome in the 5k race. There will be awards for walkers as well.
