Frosty 5K

Frosty 5K


Frosty 5k is a brand new event - not just to St Helena Hospice or Colchester but across the country - sign up now and you could be one of the first people in the UK to take part!
The event will take place on Saturday 29th February 2020 (Leap Day!) at the University of Essex, with the first wave setting off at 11am.
It's a 5k fun run - but you can walk, run, hop, dance etc round the course, which is 2 laps of a 2.5k route - so it's suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs, meaning any age can take part!
The event will begin with a fun warm up before you line up and set off from a very snowy start line (don't worry, you won't get wet from this fake snow). The course then takes you through four winter themed zones: fire, ice, snow and fog. Expect to see inflatable waving snowmen in the snow zone; flames (albeit fake ones) to warm you up in the cosy cabin in the fire zone; 6metres of icy smoke in the fog zone; and an inflatable igloo in the ice zone.
