FFF10M-2014StartIt’s difficult to keep training through Colorado’s harsh winters, but the Winter Distance Series helps by motivating thousands of runners to keep moving. The series offers three events in Littleton. The first race is the Santa Stampede 5K/10K in December, followed by the Frosty’s Frozen 5 and 10 Miler in January, and then the Snowman Stampede 5 and 10 Miler in February. Each race offers a party-like atmosphere with flat and fast courses along the banks of the scenic South Platte River. Run a great race and earn your bling with a new finisher’s medal. Register for the whole series, or just one or two races.

The series is a benefit for the Fetal Health Foundation. The Fetal Health Foundation’s mission is to provide support, provide information, fund research, increase awareness and be an outlet for leading medical information pertaining to fetal syndromes. They are all about arming families and healthcare providers with information and helping to save babies’ lives. For more information, check out www.fetalhope.org.

All participants will receive a t-shirt with the race logo, professional chip timing, a finisher’s medal, and aid stations with water, and electrolyte drinks. Award winners will receive gift certificates from Runners Roost. A post race celebration will feature local vendors and food, including bagels, fruit, cookies, muffins. The race series is sponsored by Colorado Runner Magazine, Runners Roost, New Balance, Sports Authority, Gatorade, Road ID, and more.
