We can’t really remember how many years we’ve been holding the Winter Flakes Race, but we determined that it doesn’t really matter because we’re okay with our eccentricities and poor memory. You won’t want to miss the 2020 edition though. We’re slated to run on February 29, 2020.
The race still offers a 5K, 10K, and 1 mile course. Most of the course is fairly flat, with the 10K being the most challenging. The registration fee is still just $20 for the 5K and 10K and $10 for the 1 mile. Fees increase on February 12, and you’re only guaranteed one of the long-sleeved t-shirts if you register early.
Winter is a challenging time to stay motivated, so perhaps this race is a good impetus to stay moving this winter. Yes, it will likely be cold; even very cold. The real beauty of it is that you get to see all the other members of our crazy tribe. (They’ll start assembling around 7 am on February 29, 2020.)
Planning your physical activities and doing things to break up the monotony are both good strategies for staying active during these cold months. You can find more strategies here, in an article about staying motivated during the cold.
