What is a virtual race?

A virtual race is a race that you can do anywhere, and it does not have a specific time or starting place! You pick the day, time and even the route.

What is the Winter Virtual 5K Series?

The Frosty Rock race is part of a series of six total walk/runs that are offered by Fort HealthCare between October 2020 and February 2021. Participants can sign up for one or all the races for free.

How long is a 5k? How long is a 12k?
