Welcome to winter. The Christmas Season is upon us, the ground is covered in snow and the Freezeroo series is about to start. The Freezeroo remains one of the longest established values of GRTC membership and a favorite of individuals and the running community. It is definitely an important way to keep us all running together and connected through the long upstate New York winter. The dates and courses below give a variety of distances for all levels.  Series awards will be given out at the White House Race on 2/19/22. Sign up now for the whole series. Come out to enjoy the runs and get on the podium at the White House run in February.


The first Freezeroo race in just 10 days will again be the Don Curran Memorial on 12/11 in Gates. Come out that morning and help us kick off a new running year in style. Registration links are below. This year’s series gift for the first 150 participants is a sports towel with the GRTC logo, so signup today. And if you are not up for the run, but would like to enjoy the fun, we DO still need a few road marshals and volunteers for this and for all the subsequent Freezeroo races. Please let us know right away if you can help out on 12/11 (Djones6703@aol.com) or on any of the subsequent freezeroo races as listed below. Volunteer support of GRTC events is always crucial to making them successful and available to everyone.
