January 31, 2015
Round out your New Year's resolutions on the last day of January 2015. You can lace up your sneakers and jog over to the starting line for the fun, untimed 5K and 10K races. Accessible to all ages and athletic levels, this casual community event invites you to get moving at your own pace. Plus, this fundraising effort uses your $10 registration fee to benefit local organizations. Give back to the Bend community as you do your personal fitness a favor. You can walk, jog, or sprint to the finish line to complete the course, one of the most inexpensive races of the year.
Bend may seem like an intimidating city to host a race event. With the backdrop of the majestic Cascade Mountains, you may consider a route with a steady uphill climb. On the contrary, the Fleet Feet Freezer follows a mostly downhill grade, meaning you can trot along at a comfortable pace. On a clear, cold day, this brisk exercise is the best way to breathe in the fresh air and warm up in the winter weather.
Burn some calories, and then you can enjoy the best of Bend guilt-free. Dine downtown at delicious local restaurants, where you can sample regional fare with the freshest local flavors. Hit the Bend Ale Trail for the largest beer trail on the West Coast, watering holes where you can raise a pint to celebrate your race-day achievements.
You can sign up for this relaxed race at http://www.fleetfeetbend.com/races/fleetfeetfreezer. Book your stay at one of our Bend hotels for quick access to the thriving downtown scene and the Mt. Bachelor skiing resort.
