Frostbite 5k Run/Walk

The Frostbite 5k is an informal and "no frills" running event, on Saturday, Feb. 4, that encourages an active and healthy lifestyle by providing a safe course that is confined to the interior streets and perimeter sidewalk of Washburn University. Registration begins at 7 a.m. inside the southeast doors of the Petro Allied Health building, with the race starting at 8 a.m. The entry fee is $10, with proceeds benefiting the Washburn Running Club. Runners and walkers of all levels are encouraged to participate, as this event provides an opportunity to jump-start your spring fitness goals, or test the effects of your winter training.

Washburn University Running Club sponsors the event. For more information, contact Dave Provorse at (785) 670-1565.
