Frostbite run will usher in cooler temperatures, support youth programs
Cooler days are forecast, but there remain opportunities for people to get out and stay active as winter comes near.
“We absolutely want to provide an opportunity for people to stay active during the cooler season, and a race is a great way to motivate people to stick to their workout plan,” said Emily Starke, director of wellness and chronic disease prevention at the Stevens Point Area YMCA.
“It’s a great way to stay on track through the holidays,” she said.
The 41st annual Stevens Point Area YMCA’s Frostbite Road Race and Winter Walk – Presented by Community First Bank will begin at noon Saturday, Dec. 3. Choose between a chip-timed five-mile or 10-mile run, and a noncompetitive five-mile walk.
