Ride or Run 2018 Frozen Toes 15K Races on Kessler Mountain’s New Single Track Trails

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The City of Fayetteville’s Parks and Recreation Department has made an exciting change to the third annual Frozen Toes 15K on Kessler Mountain. For 2018, participants can run, mountain bike, or do both races! Hot soup will be served after each race.

The event is perfect for runners looking to transition from a 5K/10K distance to a longer trail race. Riders can experience new and improved multi-purpose single track trails – technical in some areas, but the views are worth it! The mountain bike race is offered in collaboration with Ozark Off-Road Cyclists, the organization that built many of the original trails on the mountain. All participants will have a chance to win prizes in addition to Male/Female Overall Finisher and Age Group awards.
