Frozen Toes 5K & 15K

Every season brings new ways to experience the fantastic trail network in Fayetteville, Arkansas and one of the best options to help shake off the inevitable January blues is the 5th Annual Frozen Toes 15K and 5K race on Saturday, January 18 at 9 a.m. Held on the Kessler Mountain Trails, this gorgeous course boasts some seriously awe-inspiring views of the Ozark Mountains and is a perfect option for runners who want to challenge themselves to transition from a 5K or 10K to a bit longer distance.

Race start and finish is at Kessler Mountain Regional Park, a 620-acre area in southwest Fayetteville that makes up one of the region’s most stunning nature preserves with pristine forest, open meadows and even scenic bluffs. The course features singletrack trail running, a welcome break for many from traditional pavement trails. And—once runners complete the race, tasty hot soup will be waiting to refuel everyone!

The entry fee is $30 and includes finisher medals and custom socks. The 15K race is open for runners age 12 and older; athletes of all ages are welcome to participate in the 5K race. Prizes will be awarded to the overall top three male and female finishers, as well as the top male and female finishers for each age group. Advance registration is available online, or on race day from 7:45 – 8:45 a.m.

If distance trail running isn’t your thing but you’d like to be involved in the race day fun, the City of Fayetteville Park and Recreation team is seeking volunteers for an array of jobs.
