WICKED FROSTY 5-MILER IS CANCELED

We are very disappointed to have to announce the cancellation of the inaugural Wicked Frosty 5-miler. After days of closely monitoring the impending storm, it has become abudently clear that Saturday will be a mess. The latest prediction has snowfall totals topping 24" in Portland, with gusty winds and cold temps. Not exactly ideal conditions for running a personal best!

At the same time, our permit with the City does not allow a road race when there are plows on the streets, which will almost certainly be the case this weekend.

If you are are registered athlete, you will be receiving an e-mail this afternoon that outlines the options for deferrals and refunds. If you do not receive this, please contact info@tri-maine.com for details.

But all is not lost! We are excited to announce the SUMMER VERSION of this race, taking place in August. Join us for this Thursday night sunset event, which will feature the same great course, and a festive gathering at the finish line. More details about the Maine Running Company Mid-Summer 5-miler will be available in the coming weeks.

The Wicked Frosty 5-Miler will be timed by Back40, using the IPICO chip system. Results will be available live on smartphones and mobile devices - click here.

Also, check out the other great events that are happening on Portland's East End later that day!

Awards will be presented at Maine Running Company's future location (309 Marginal Way) after the race. They will be given to the top 3 Male and Female finishers overall, as well as the top finishers in each age category.

Please note: Because the official course utilizes bike trails, there is a chance that it will be too icy to run on, in which case, we will follow an alternative course. This determination will be made before race morning and announced on the website.

An athlete's guide will be e-mailed to all registered athletes a few days before the race with specific instructions about parking, road closures, etc.

** Walkers are welcome but be aware that the East End Trail portion of the course closes at 11 a.m. because there is another race taking place after that time. There will be volunteers at the finish line to cheer you on!!!
