EVENT DETAILS

Back for a 5th year!  Meltfest is held the first Saturday in SPRING.  For 2018 this is Saturday, March 24, 2018.

Similar to years past, the event starts and finishes at the historic Prairie Street Brewhouse while taking runners and walkers through multiple historic districts of downtown Rockford.  The race kicks off at 10:00 a.m. 

After the race, stay for a day of free festivities including market and food vendors, kid activities, live music, and a bunch of other fun surprises. Check out www.meltfest.com or follow us on Facebook to learn more details as the event draws nearer.

All participants receive a commemorative shirt, finisher medal, get to enjoy the post race snack-table, and get to lay claim to a free Rockford IceHogs ticket for that evening's game against the Chicago Wolves (advance registration required for IceHogs ticket).  In addition, $5 from every participant will be donated to the selected nonprofit for the year (KFACT - Keeping Families and Communities Together; www.k-fact.org).  PLUS: Lots of other fun surprises are in the works.  We truly think this is a 5K that you do not want to miss.
