The Winter Distance Series is once again partnering with the Fetal Hope Foundation for a series of three running events from December through February in Littleton, Colorado.
The series begins on December 17 with Rudolph’s Revenge 5K and 10K. Next up is Frosty’s Frozen Five and Ten mile races on January 21. The final race is the Snowman Stampede, which offers five and ten mile races on February 18. All three events take place at Hudson Gardens with the shortest race kicking off at 9 a.m. and the longer event starting at 10:15 a.m. Both runners and walkers are welcome.
“Last year we welcomed record crowds to the series events,” said Derek Griffiths, race director. “We had over 1,000 finishers at the first race and 1,000 registrants at the other two. Currently, registration is on record pace for the seventh year of the series, which means we will be able to make an even bigger impact in the community.”
The Fetal Hope Foundation’s mission is to provide support, information, fund research, increase awareness and be an outlet for leading medical information pertaining to fetal distresses and syndromes. Aligned with some of the world’s leading fetal medicine centers, Fetal Hope has been organized to provide accurate and factual information for families dealing with syndromes such as Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome and Acardiac Twinning.
The series is sponsored by the Runners Roost, New Balance, Coda Coffee, the Melting Pot and Colorado Runner Magazine.
