I heard from the Frostbite race organizers yesterday and at that point there were 721 participants registered (that’s a number that combines the 5k and the 10k). That’s already a huge increase over last year when there was a total of just under 460 finishers combined. Remember, the 5k is part of the 2012 Asheville Track Club Grand Prix Series.
Here’s a note from the race organizers:
As of today we have 721 runners signed up for this years Park Ridge Health 5k/10k Run. Please advise your readers to sign up prior to the actual race day, if they want to receive a shirt! We are expecting close to 900 to run by race weekend and want to avoid any race day disappointments.
