PRTC Weekly: 01/29/2018 Frostbite 5 Mile, Dues Reminder, and More

Frostbite 5 Mile

Our third place finish in the 2017 Grand Prix left us hungry for improvement. Luckily, redemption is near at hand. The 2018 Grand Prix series kicks off soon with the Frostbite 5 Mile in Ambler, PA. This is a great race to start off the year with. A nice rust buster and a chance to rack up some points on the USATF circuit!

“The 19th Annual Frostbite 5-Miler, sponsored by the Ambler Area Running Club, is mostly flat, with gently rolling hills. The most renowned February race in the area! Certified 5 Mile race course.”

Let us know if a ride to the race is needed.


First Place Male/Female: $250

First Place Master Male/Female: $100

Second Place Male/Female: $100

Third Place Male/Female: $50
