About This Activity


Due to the extreme temperatures, we are altering our Race Day Schedule slightly to shorten the event for our particpants and our volunteers.  Please review updated information.

We are still hosting the truly CHILLY 5k, but for the safety of our kiddos, we have made the decision to cancel the 1 mile Frozen Fun Run for Monday, 01.01.2018  We did not want to disappoint our parents or the kids, but we also felt it was important to put their safety first.  Shirts and participation medals will still be available.  Medals and shirts may be picked up at the Registration Table on race day from 10am-11am, or at we will also have the extra shirts and Fun Run medals at our front desk starting Tuesday 01.02.2018.

 Many of you have made the Chilly 5k a part of your New Year's tradition!  We don't want the cold to stop this heart warming event!

This fundraiser represents about 10% of our annual campaign goal, and these temperatures are freezing out some of our race registrations! Brrrr!!  We understand! We are so grateful for those willing to run, walk, and volunteer despite the true Chilly weather.  But for those who love the Y, but not quite enough to endure 11 degreee weather, we still welcome your support!  This event registration was designed so you may no register to support our fundraiser.   You will not recieve a chip or a bib, or be expected at the starting line.  Your $20 registration fee will  secure a race T-shirt and help us continue the community work we do year round.  Your event shirt will be available for pick-up during scheduled packet pick-up hours, or at the front desk starting 01.02.2018 

T-Shirt Pick up:  Friday, December 29th 10am- 9pm or Saturday, December 30th 10am - 8pm

Thank you for supporting the Joplin Family Y!
