The 27th Annual Lelia Patterson Center Frostbite Races takes place on Sunday, February 17th in Fletcher North Carolina starting at 1:45pm. Both courses provide views of Hutch Mountain and are on hilly to challenging terrain, with some steep inclines on both the 10k and 5k courses. The moderately rolling 1 mile course, makes this premier racing event an opportunity for all running levels and ages. 1 mile fun run participants will receive a finisher's award!
The Frostbite races begin and finish at the Lelia Patterson Center, located at Howard Gap Road & Naples Road in Fletcher, N.C. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the The United Way – Big Brother, Big Sisters Program. The 2019 Frostbite event also will feature a Family Fun Day and Wellness Expo at the Lelia Patterson Center from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. with games, booths & music.
- We have an updated 1 Mile Run/Walk Course for both kids, youth and adults to enjoy! All one mile finishers will receive a custom-designed, commemorative finisher award.
