Frosty 3-Miler & Reindeer Run

Join runners of all ages at the Frosty 5K & Reindeer Run at the Jeff Rouse Swim and Sport Center.  Gwyneth’s Gift will be on hand to promote the importance of CPR and to provide education on CPR and the use of the AED.

Come join the fun and learn to save a life!


It’s a Stafford Christmas tradition!  Run with us on December 11th on a 3 mile course along the rolling hills of Mine Road (note: we said rolling, as in gently rolling…NO Halloween Hill.  You’re welcome.).  Kids 12 and under can join the fun in the Reindeer Run!  Dressing up is always encouraged – we’ve seen Santas, Olafs, reindeer, and snowmen!

We have added a virtual option for athletes who would prefer to participate virtually.

This is the 5th and final race in the Stafford Race Series.  Please pick up your series gift at the end of your race.


Once again, you have two options for the Frosty 3 Miler and Reindeer Run: In-person and virtual!

The virtual race can be run anytime, anywhere on Saturday, December 11th or Sunday, December 12th. The in-person race will be held on Saturday, December 11th.  Virtual Race times must be submitted by 11:59pm on Sunday the 12th.

Based on the current COVID-19 guidelines (as of 6/23/2021 – no restrictions!) below is the current game plan for race day:

The mile run will begin at 9am.  If we have a large enough field, we will have a girls’ race at 9am and a boys’ race at 9:15am. The 3 Mile race will begin at 9:30am.

There is no paper registration for this race.  Registration is online only.

Strollers are permitted on the race course, but stroller participants must start in the back.  Dogs are not permitted.
