Hall Fletcher Elementary in West Asheville Hosts First Annual Frostbreaker 5K Race

Wednesday, February 15, 2017
Cannon Hill Run

Hall Fletcher Elementary will host its first annual Frostbreaker 5K, an Asheville Track Club Grand Prix Event, on March 18, 2017!

This race will raise funds for their PTO, and all community members are invited to join.

This run was created to help ease the transition for Hall Fletcher Elementary’s children and families to a traditional school calendar from a year-round schedule. Since the extra 6 weeks of summer will be challenging for many families, the funds will be used to implement summer programs such as weekly fresh food initiatives, camp scholarships, the FEAST garden project and much-needed new gym equipment.

This chip-timed FAST and FLAT 5K takes place entirely along the French Broad River from the Dog Park through Carrier Park and back. Go for your fastest time and/or bring your doggie running buddy! Race begins promptly at 8:00 am on Saturday, March 18, 2017. Runners should meet at The French Broad River Park on Riverview and Amboy. The registration fee is $30, and the first 50 people to register will get a free Frostbreaker 5K T-Shirt.

Snacks and beverages will be available AFTER the race. Runners should bring their ID as well.

The race is also seeking community and business sponsors at slidethefletch.com.
