Frost Giant 5K
Thank you to our 2018 Frost Giant participants!
You can view the complete results and award lists here at Five Star Timing or by opening the documents at the bottom of the page.
EVRPD has decided to step away from organizing the Frost Giant event and will not be hosting it starting in 2019.
We are currently seeking an entity (a group or individuals) who might be willing to sponsor and organize the event moving forward.
While the Frost Giant used to be a profitable, fund-raising event for our scholarship fund, in recent years EVRPD has lost money on the race due to the fact that services which used to be provided by race partners free of charge (security, traffic control, etc.) are now billable provisions.
Also, due to budget constraints being experienced by some of our former race sponsors, we have lost over $1,500 in direct funding over the past couple of years, and after factoring in the cost of staff time, supplies, shirts, etc., it is no longer financially viable for EVRPD to organize and conduct the race.
We are seeking individuals that have a vested interest in continuing the race for 2019 and the years following. We are looking to transition this race into the hands of these individuals so that it can continue in the traditional format that long-time Frost Giant racers are looking for.
EVRPD will offer the following support:
1. EVRPD race sponsorship (t-shirts, race bibs, etc.)
2. Handoff of any historical information that would help future race directors
To be clear, the Estes Valley Recreation and Park District will not be administering the Frost Giant 5K/10K moving forward. We are willing to support it through sponsorship and finding the right people/organization to lead it in the future.
Please let us know if you would be interested in leading this transition. We would like to set up a meeting time in November to discuss the transition and next steps.
If you are interested in information about what is involved and organizing the race, please contact Tom Carosello at 970-586-8191 x117 or email him.
