Speaking of repeats, I ran this event last year and had a great time. Here is some of my recap:
304 runners and walkers alike enjoyed near perfect conditions ([in 2014] at race time it was 8 degrees) as they worked their way down onto the Dry Canyon Trail for either the 5K or 10K route, both of which are out and backs that start and end at St Thomas church in Redmond. Besides the good weather and the record turnout (nearly 40% increase from 2014), the church also hosts an expo that starts before the races and keeps going until after the awards ceremony.
As I mentioned, the Polar Bear Expo kicks off inside the school after the run. Enjoy free hot chocolate and coffee and meet local health and fitness experts as well as some local businesses who will have plenty of goodies on hand.
When: Saturday, January 9th, 2016. Race starts at 10:30am
