79B2A6C9-5FA3-451E-96AA-BC07D4B5B4EF

2019 is fast approaching, much like a runner going downhill with no way to stop. Soon, it will be here and it will bring New Years races galore!! One such race is the Frostbite 5K/10K in Talent, which is tucked right between Medford and Ashland, in Southern Oregon. The area is known for running and boasts the oldest and most active running club in Oregon, known as Southern Oregon Runners (SOR).

The Frostbite Run got its start in 2008 and has been a staple ever since. And even with the cold weather that is typical for January, runners can expect a fast, fun race, due to a simple, flat course that is out and back for both distances. Current course records for the 5K are 16:52 (men) and 17:57 (women). 10K course records are 33:00 (men) and 36:20 (women). While there may be a few speedy runners in the mix, the turnout is always fantastic for this event. Last year, nearly 270 runners toed the line between the 2 races! Part of the success for this race is the fact the cost is always very low, especially for kids. So, if you’re looking for a fun, inexpensive race to jump into for early January, check out the Frostbite!

When: Saturday, January 5th. Races start at 11:00 am at Talent Middle School.

Cost: 10k & 5k – $20 for early registration for non-club members | $15 early registration for SOR members | $7 for 17 and under always.  All processing fees are always included.  LATE and Day of registrations will be $25 for ALL runners, except 17 and under.
