Frostbite Festival

Sunday December 5th, 2021

Springfield, IL

Official Website


The Frostbite Festival runs on the first Sunday of December each year, so you never know what kind of weather we'll get!  There are two options for these out-and-back races: the 2 mile and 10 mile race.  For the safety and well-being of all participants, the 2021 Frostbite Festival will have an In-Person and Virtual option. 


In-person race day details are still being finalized and will follow all local and state regulations and recommendations on race day.


You will be able to run the Frostbite Festival on your own time and on your own course. You choose the location and if you would like to run or walk. You do not have to run the course. If you choose to do so, please use extreme caution as that area can be heavily traveled by cars moving very fast. There will not be any course support, markings, or course marshals directing traffic. Also, please do not park in the Fit Club lot. 

Submitting Your Result
Beginning December 5th you will be able to submit your time.  To submit your virtual time, click on the link below.  (Note: link will not appear until closer to race day)  By your name, click EDIT TIME.  You can submit results from Dec 5 - Dec 13. 

There are no age group awards for the virtual event; however, your finish time must be entered to verify your participation, especially for those Club members who are participating in the Abe’s 50K throwdown. 


Packet pickup will be held on Saturday, December 4, 2021 at 11:00 am -3:30 pm at the Springfield Running Center, 2943 W White Oaks Dr. Suite 1, Springfield 62704.  We plan to set up packet pickup on the southeast corner of the parking lot.
