Lace up your running shoes and dust off your spoons, the Brain Freezer 5K is back!!

This year the BF5K will be returning to an in person event! We've missed you all and can't wait for some ice cream fueled fun!
If you are new to the race, the rules are simple: Challengers run half a 5k, stop to down a full pint of Vermont made ice cream, then finish out the the race! Are you up for the challenge? (fun runners do not have to finish a pint)

This year we have a new route! The race still starts at Battery Park, but will now go up the bike path along beautiful Lake Champlain. Racers will stop at North Beach to down their pints. The route will return down the bike path to finish back at Battery Park.

Prizes will be given out for best costume and best team costumes, so have fun with it!

All of the proceeds from the race go to People Helping People Global, a Vermont-based international development organization that provides interest-free microloans to people living on less than $2 a day.
