Frozen Feet 4k run/walk
The Frozen Feet 4k fun run and walk during Christmas on Historic Broadway in Spring Valley will have several few new perks this year, including an earlier start time, free drinks at Stellar 181 Tap House and some custom-made awards.
The Kingsland Youth Football group is still the sponsoring organization for the event, which is in its ninth year. The group that supports youth football for Kingsland students will be handling organization of the run set for 11 a.m., Saturday, Dec. 9, an earlier time than in past years. All proceeds will go to the program, which is the training ground for varsity players such as the ones in this year’s state playoffs.
Participants in this year’s event will receive one free drink from Stellar 181. Those under 21 years of age will get a virgin Stellar Punch while people 21 and older will get their choice of a virgin or regular Stellar Punch. The drinks will be available at Stellar 181 after the post-run awards.
The Mundfrom Building, 124 North Broadway Avenue, will be the meeting place and finishing location again this year. Baked goodies and other treats will be available at the end of the event.
During the post-event festivities, awards will be presented to the overall male winner, overall female winner and the runner with the ugliest sweater. The awards are being made by students in the metal art program at Kingsland High School.
Once again, the event will have several gifts available to participants through a drawing at the conclusion of the run/walk through a festive Spring Valley. Several local businesses have generously donated gift cards and other goodies that will be distributed through the drawing.
Participants will be able to join the run for a $15 entry fee. There is also an option to contribute additional dollars to the Kingsland youth football program.
Advance registration is encouraged online at springvalleyeda.org. People can also donate to the group online. Paper forms are available at City Hall. Same-day registration is an option at the Mundfrom Building starting at 10 a.m.
During the event, runners will leave downtown Spring Valley, run south on Washington Avenue, head west on Sample Road, then head back north on Territorial Road before hitting the trail off of Church Street, crossing the creek and continuing through the Trail of Trees and back to downtown. The route is just short of 2.5 miles. Walkers can traverse the entire route or take a shortened jaunt around and through the beautiful Trail of Trees.
The event is part of Christmas on Historic Broadway put on by the Spring Valley Chamber of Commerce and Brave Community Theatre. Other events include a visit by Santa Claus and a light parade in the evening of Dec. 9.
