Frostbite Prediction 5K


"Thank you to all who ran our race!  Scroll Down for RESULTS.  Cold related power equipment failures and human frailty combined to produce an error in the original announced results.  These updated results correct that error.  We apologize for those who should have been recognized and will provide the proper top ten with awards in short order.  A special congratulatory shout out to Danelle Villers and Melinda Cox who were the best predictors missing their times by just one second.  And welcome to all new members of Summit Athletic Running Club!"

This is a time prediction 5k run, anybody fast or slow can win by being the closest to finish to their predicted time. So.....

In the spirit of the event please note: NO TIMING DEVICES ALLOWED DURING THE RACE, INCLUDING WATCHES, GPS UNITS AND HEART MONITORS, HEADPHONES, HEADSETS, OR EAR BUDS.  Please do not ask for an exception to these restrictions, it causes the race directors great distress!

This race was originally a Club Members event. Falling back on that tradition, we have special pricing for club members. Current club members pay just $10! For those who are not yet members, the price is $35 which includes 1 year individual club membership. Register early to be sure to get your official Frostbite Arm Warmers.

For those becoming SARC members through this race, the benefits of membership include discounts on race entry fees at most Club races, discounts at local sporting goods store like Ritchies Sporting Goods and Vertical runner, social opportunities with other runners and their families at monthly club meetings and events, all serving food, and volunteer opportunities to help support the running community while earning points toward merchandise awards.


Will be presented as soon as all runners have finished. Remember the last person to finish may be the best predictor!

Awards to the runner closest to his/her predicted time; not always to the fastest overall runners. Awards will go as deep as the prize pile. Great Prizes!

NOTE: In the event of a snow emergency or dangerous weather conditions, the race will be canceled and then run the next Saturday (February 11, 2017). Please check www.summitathletic.com for any last minute race information.
