About The Race

1. What is Frost the Trail 2017

Frost the Trail is great way of giving back to the community!

Frost the Trail is essentially a Corporate Run - where all funds (100%) collected from the run will be collected and given to our adopted charity, Bright Hill Evergreen Home.

Currently in its 12th year, Frost the Trail 2017 will be held at the MacRitchie Reservoir Park.

Organizations can send in teams of 4 or individuals to participate. The fastest team or individual to cross the finish line wins!

2. How does this race work?

All teams will have four members, who will race along a range of outdoor terrain. They'll all be flagged off together and the combined total time of the four runners will determine their position after the race.

The Individual Category will be flagged off before the Team Category. The personal completion time will determine their position after the race.
