Other important details

Early packet pickup

Pre-race number pick-up will take place at the DUBLIN CRC (6465 Perimeter Dr 43016) the Thursday and Friday immediately preceding each race (Jan 6th and 7th for Race 1, January 20th and 21st for Race 2). Race day registration (while available, each race is capped at 120 participants) and number pick-up will begin at 9:00 am inside the Education Building at Stratford. This is the first building to the right when you get through the woods on the driveway. Indoor restroom access will be available. All other activities will be outdoors. It is the Frigid 5K after all!


Yes, races give this stuff away. Often shirts, hats, or something similar. They call it ‘goodie bags’, ‘Swag’, or ‘free stuff’. What are you going to get when you sign up for this race? Well, first off Mother Nature is going to slap you silly for more than three miles. She’s got cold hands. Everyone will get a little extra snot on their lip. Courtesy of your own nose, hopefully. Best of all you’ll get a heavy dose of pride. Every year, the Frigid 5K changes up our swag. This year, we're giving away an awesome Frigid 5K long sleeve t-shirt and a pair of hand warmers. These are available for each registrant. Please note: if you sign up for both races, you only get one long sleeve t-shirt (but we will get you two hand-warmers)!

Age group awards

Delicious baked goods will be provided for top finishers and age group winners. 19&U, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+.

Post-race food and beverage options

Hot chocolate will be provided. Other post-race refreshments may include water, fruit, and chips. The famous Frigid 5K hot dogs are also BACK!


Gone are the days of a frozen trip to the porta-john. Again, this year we'll have access to (cue trumpets) indoor restrooms with heating, flushing toilets, all the best 21st Century amenities!


Free parking is available at Stratford Ecological Center, but is somewhat limited. We highly encourage car-pooling. Overflow parking is available and may be utilized if conditions dictate on race day. Please follow the instructions of all event staff regarding parking.
