Save the date for the third annual Fort HealthCare Frosty Rock Challenge 5k &12k on Saturday, November 14th. Beginning at the Fort HealthCare Therapy & Sport Center in Fort Atkinson, participants will have a choice between a 5k road course run or walk and a 12k mixed course run. New this year is a one-mile kids’ run, age-group awards and a “no T-shirt” charitable contribution option.

On the 12k course, runners will amble through the oak savannah, past the marshes and wetlands, and over the prairie at Dorothy Carnes County Park. If the distance or the course seems intimidating, the 5k course takes in neighborhood views of Fort Atkinson. All three courses start and end at Fort HealthCare’s Therapy & Sport Center, 1504 Madison Avenue, Fort Atkinson. Chip timing is provided by It’s Race Time, Inc.

Early bird registration is open through September 30, 2015. Participants registering by September 30th receive a $10 discount on registration fees. Registrations by November 6th provide for a $5 discount. After that date, the fee for the 12k mixed course race is $45 and the fee for the 5k run/walk is $35. Kid’s fees are $10 entrance fee or $15 entrance fee with a t-shirt. All kids will receive a medal. On-line registration closes on Thursday, November 12th. All participants pre-registered by October 15th will receive a race shirt.
