Virtual Frosty 5K

$40 If you can't join us in person, keep your Frosty streak alive. Invite friends, family and your co-workers to do the Frosty 5K virtually with you.

The Frosty 5K is back for the 12th year!  Saturday, December 18, 2021.  Starting and finishing at Twin Lakes Park, Sarasota, through the adjacent neighborhood.  We will be using the same wide-open road course as the past three years, no grass or paths, all asphalt surfaces for a smooth, fast course.

Runners and walkers of all levels are welcome for this Frosty good time.  Race Perks Include:

  • Custom Frosty 5K Finisher Medal for ALL Finishers
  • Great Tech Shirt in Gender Specific and Youth Sizing (Register early-supply chain issues make it even more important if you want your shirt size!)
  • Awards!  "Gun Time" M & F Overall, Youth Overall (14 & under) and Categories Masters through Veteran Grandmasters & "Chip Time" Age Groups
  • Prizes for Most Creative Frosty Costumes
  • Festive Post-Race with Great Food & Beverages

As part of our commitment to the health & safety of our participants, race crew, volunteers and spectators, we will implement procedures and protocols commensurate with public health situations and based on guidance from local, national and international health agencies.

In the event we are unable to hold the Frosty 5K in person, you can transfer to the Virtual Frosty 5K or select to use the credit for the amount of the registration fee (not including the online processing fee) on a future Active Suncoast event.  Please know that we will endeavor to hold the Frosty 5K in person with the adaptive strategies we have been employing to continue our in-person events but sometimes circumstances are beyond our control.

If you can't join us in-person, you can register for the Virtual Frosty 5K and still get your Frosty on virtually anywhere!  And do it any time between December 11th and December 27th to submit your own Virtual Frosty 5K results online.  Your Virtual Frosty 5K race packet will be mailed the week of December 12th as long as you register before December 10th.

COVID-19 Precautions

We will implement COVID protocols and/or increase precautions as warranted by the conditions at the time of the Frosty 5K.

If you test positive or develop symptoms of COVID-19 or otherwise become ill within 14 days of the event, we request that you not come to the Frosty 5K.  Please notify us before the event and we will work with you to transfer your registration to someone outside your household or change your registration to the Virtual Frosty 5K.

The Frosty 5K is chip-timed by Durti Timing and participants will receive their own finish time and preliminary results to their phone or email as selected during registration.  (Please allow a few minutes after you finish for the results to be "pushed" from the finish line equipment, bounced around cell towers, arriving to RunSignUp then back to your device.)  Results will be available on RunSignUp and we will post the QR code link to view and search results online at locations around the post-race.  To help with distancing and avoid crowding, results will be ted at several locations on-site and there will not be the traditional awards. 

CDC COVID information: 

We look forward to seeing our running friends once again and hope you’ll join us!
