2014 Frigid Fanny 5k Trail Race
Sunday, January 19, 2014 at 11:00 AM (CST)
Let’s be honest with ourselves: we are all going to eat WAY too much over the holiday season. What better way to work off that extra holiday chunk and keep your New Year’s resolution than to stop raiding the fridge and get your fanny frigid!?
Don’t take our word for how awesome this race will be. Check out what some of our runners said about the 2013 Frigid Fanny 5k. These are exact quotes from our feedback form:
“Awesome. Simply Awesome.”
“LOVED this race!!! Everything about it was fun and awesome, can't believe you got me to go out in the frigid cold to run but it was TOTALLY worth it.”
“Everything was awesome, and everyone was so nice!”
“It should be illegal to have that much fun in so much cold!”
“So much fun! It will be hard to go back to the pavement after running a trail run!”
“The obstacle towards the end of the race (duck/squat under the tree branch) was brutal!!!”
“I love Muddy Monk! The races are so relaxed and fun!”
The Frigid Fanny 5k Trail Race will take place in Sundown Meadow Forest Preserve on Sunday, January 19, 2014 at 11am. The beautiful trails of Sundown Meadow provide a nice mix of single track and double track trails that will take you over roots, rocks, downed trees, and make you glad that you skipped another training run on the lake front to hit the trails. The trails will be well marked and are friendly enough for the beginning trail runner while also challenging enough for the seasoned trail nut.
Following the race there will be free food, snacks, and soft drinks. All trail runners of legal age will be given ONE FREE BEER with more beer available for purchase. Results will be live streamed on our big screen on site as well as online so that you don’t have to wait until Monday to rub your accomplishment in your co-worker’s face or humblebrag your accomplishment on Facebook.
All runners will receive a Frigid Fanny long sleeve t-shirt (50/50 sport blend so the sleeves won’t shrink!), a Frigid Fanny race bib, a unique finisher’s award, free food, snacks, and soft drinks, and one free beer (for participants over 21 years of age).
The course will vary slightly from the 2013 course in order to keep runners from bottlenecking at the beginning of the race. A course map and participant waiver will be posted at least one month before the race.
EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION IS ONLY $20! Early bird registration will end at 11:59pm CST on Sunday, February 3.
Registration is only $28. Get a group of 5 or more together and registration is only $25. Yep, the same prices as 2013. We hate escalating prices as much as you do!
Online registration will close on Monday, January 13 at 11:55pm CST or until the race is sold out. This race is capped at 500 participants, so be sure to register quickly as our races have been selling out weeks before the race.
When & Where
We love people. We love Chicago. We love trail running. And we love good beer. We thought it would be a good idea to combine them all. Why not, right?
Our goal is to provide Chicagoland with the best possible trail running experience. From the course design to the staff at the aid stations to the beer served at the after party, our #1 goal is for you to have the best time possible.
We are partnering with local small businesses in the Chicagoland area to start a series of trail races beginning in the fall of 2012.
Hope to see you on the trail soon!
