Dead of Winter 5K

February 10 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Our Fifth Annual Dead of Winter 5k!!!
Wow! Are we really doing this for the 5th year? Why not? If people are crazy enough to come out and race, we’re just crazy enough to give them the opportunity!
Sleep late on February 10th, let it warm up a little, and then race a cross country 5K at Verdun Adventure Bound at 11:00 AM.
To take the chill off, hot chocolate will be served around a roaring campfire at the finish line next to the pavilion.
This race is a fundraiser with all proceeds going to support Verdun Adventure Bound. Verdun is a educational 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to support youth and adult personal growth incorporating experiential learning and stewardship of the land on its 66 acre retreat facility. Check them out at the link below.
$25 Early Bird Special through 11:59pm Jan 27, 2024
$30 Pre-registration Jan 27 through 9:00pm Feb 9th.
$35 on race day at Verdun.
Long Sleeve Race T-Shirt included for those who pre-reg by Jan 27th at 11:59AM. We will still collect T-Shirt size info, and we will have extra shirts, but they are not guaranteed after the cut-off.
Race Course
Verdun has a beautiful cross country course with just enough hills to make it interesting. There is a lot of variety in surface and terrain… in and out of the woods, alongside two ponds, over a couple streams (don’t worry… foot bridges).
We will have age and gender group awards as follows:
Overall – Open: 3 places
Age/Sex –
Male: 13 and under, 14-18, 19-40, 40-65, 66+
Female: 13 and under, 14-18, 19-40, 40-65, 66+
