Kick off the new year with a healthy start in historic Midway, KY!
Join us for the 5th Annual Frozen Rails 5K & 10Kin Midway, KY, on Friday, January 1, 2021, at 2pm. Kick off the new year with a healthy start at this run/walk event through the historic town of Midway. Our races will start/finish at the corner of Winter & Bruen Streets.
Our RACE DAY HEADQUARTERS will be at Midway Christian Church (123 East Bruen Street, Midway, KY 40347). We'll have onsite registration (cash, check, or credit card) from 12:30-1:45pm. The church has a cozy community left to stay warm before heading about 2 blocks to the race start/finish area. After the race, come back to the church for hot chocolate, fellowship, and awards.
Commemorative long-sleeved T-shirt, Chip Timing by RaceRise, Overall & Age Group awards, DJ, and a "Best Finish Line Photo" Contest. We will also have an untimed 1 mile fun run/walk and kids' 1K.
Partial proceeds will benefit the Midway Ministerial Association. The Midway Ministerial Association is a collaborative effort involving 7 Midway area churches (Midway Christian Church, Midway Baptist Church, Midway Presbyterian Church, St. Matthew’s AME Church, Midway United Methodist Church, Historic Second Christian Church, and Pilgrim Baptist Church) who provide support and funding for those in need in their community.
PACKET PICKUP is Thursday, December 31st, from 4-6pm at Fleet Feet Lexington at The Summit at Fritz Farm (Address: 4084 Finn Way Suite 140, Lexington, KY 40517). There will also be race day packet pickup at Midway Christian Church from 12:30-1:45pm. You are permitted to pick up packets for family members or friends with no credentials necessary.
VIRTUAL RUNNER/WALKER OPPORTUNITY If you're not able to join us in person but still wish to support our cause, you can sign up as a Virtual Runner/Walker, and we'll mail you your shirt and bib. Then (if you want) you can do your own Frozen Rails 5K or 10K on your own timeline in your own hometown. The cost of this option is $30, and all Virtual Runners/Walkers must register by December 20th.
CANNED GOOD DRIVE Bring canned or non-perishable goods to either packet pickup or the race, and we'll see that they get distributed to those in need through the Midway Food Pantry. Thanks for your support!
BEST FINISH LINE PHOTO CONTEST Thanks to Ruby Cline Eaton (The Picture Lady Photography) who will be taking race photos at the Frozen Rails. We'll select one lucky winner of our "Best Finish Line Photo" to win a free registration to a future RaceRise race, so get ready for that finish line pic!
