Race Preview: 2016 Freeze Your Fanny

Love the cold winter weather? Well, here's your chance to get out there and Freeze Your Fanny in chilly Madras, Oregon for a good cause. Choose to run, walk, and/or swim at this event benefiting MountainStar Family Relief Nursery. An organization whose mission is to "prevent child abuse and neglect through community support and therapeutic services that help vulnerable children and families succeed." This race includes a 3 mile run/walk, an 8 mile "Prison Breakout Run", and a Biathlon (3 mile run and 500 yard swim.)  The Prison Breakout Run looks like quite the challenging course with a lot of ups and downs along the way.
