FLETCHER — The Annual Frostbite Run is back in 2020, and we have a new presenting sponsor: Couch Mountain Community.

Couch Mountain is a new, sustainable community in the Fletcher area, offering 34 exclusive homesites with community gardens, miles of wooded trails, scenic mountain views, bees, chickens, and more.

The 28th annual Frostbite — the oldest and largest footrace in Henderson County will take place on Sunday, Feb. 16 at the Lelia Patterson Center.

The Frostbite race course winds near the Couch Mountain property off of Hutch Mountain Road. Registration is still open at https://runsignup.com/FrostbiteRaces

The Frostbite Run is a unique winter tradition, offering a 10K & 5K Run & 1-Mile Run/Walk for all levels of runners. Both the 10k & 5K courses provide views of Hutch Mountain and are on hilly to challenging terrain with some steep inclines.

The moderately rolling 1 mile course makes this premier racing event an opportunity for all running levels and ages.

The event starts and ends at the Lelia Patterson Center, located at Howard Gap Road & Naples Road in Fletcher. The 2020 Frostbite event will also feature a Family Fun Day and Wellness Expo at the Lelia Patterson Center from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. with lots of fun and family-friendly carnival type games, a bouncy house, yummy food and hot beverages, and live music.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the The iDream Athletes Foundation.

All participants registered before Feb. 10 will receive a finisher medal!

When you register 3 or more participants, each person will receive a $3 discount. (Limited to 6 participants).

Refer your Friends: When you register yourself, you will receive a custom registration link that you can send to your friends and family. Every time someone registers using that link, you’ll receive $3 back. (Limited to 4 referrals)

The race starts at 1:45 p.m. beginning with the 1 Mile Walk/Run and at 2:30 p.m. the 5K and 10K starts.
