FROSTBITE 5K: CHANGE OF DATE DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER

River City Races proudly produces family friendly events in the Louisville area with a focus on fun, this includes an emphasis on safety. After watching the weather and speaking with other professionals in the field, River City Races has decided it is in the best interest of all participants that the Frostbite 5K be postponed one week with a new race date of 1/20/18.

The forecast is calling for a mixture of rain, ice and snow with freezing temperatures overnight. Our main concern is with the layer of ice that will be under the snow. The roads in the park are not salted during inclement weather and due to the hilly nature of the course there a high risk for slipping when running, especially on hills. We want to make sure that everyone has a safe and fun time at all of our events and we have decided that the best way to do this is to delay until we have better conditions. We appreciate your understanding our commitment to safety.
 
Thank you again!
