The FRANKFORT FROSTY 5K was created to raise funds for First United Methodist Church's Ecumenical Honduras Medical/Dental Mission trip, the Frankfort Mission Clinic and Water With Blessings. Participants will have a blast running or walking this entertaining 3.1 miles at Lakeview Park. New in 2019 - FRED & ME 143 - a 1.43K Fun Run for those of you wanting fewer hills and a shorter distance.

Some unique things about our races:
•Come dressed in your favorite Frosty or festive winter holiday attire - Special prize for all who dress up!
•Bid on some great items in the annual Silent Auction (Your BIB# is your BID#)
•Share your wish list (and get your picture taken!) with Santa
•Holiday music throughout the route
•Steamy hot chocolate post race
•Custom hand painted age group awards - 5 year increments
•Hear how your registration fees & donations help those near and far receive much needed medical and dental care and have fresh water to drink for their families.

Be sure to check our Facebook page as we get closer to race date to see the great items secured for our Silent Auction. We also have a QUIILT RAFFLE - just $5/ticket gets you in the drawing for a queen size Lone Star quilt. Raffle sponsored by Good Shepherd Catholic Church, KY License #0001934. Drawing will be held after the race around 3:00 pm or so.
