Special Events

Frozen Nose and Toes presented by the Fredericton Marathon is back again in 2020!

Frozen Nose & Toes Event

Mark it down! Saturday, February 1st at 11:00 a.m

As part of FROSTival Fredericton, the Frozen Nose and Toes event is a 4k Fun Run or a 2k snowshoe run on Saturday, Feb. 1 along the city’s riverfront trail system.

“This winter fun run is designed to encourage people of all ages to become physically active through a family-related running activity during the winter,” said Christine Little, Fredericton Marathon co race-director.

The non-chipped time event will start at 11:00 a.m. at the Victoria Health Centre parking lot with 4k participants running along the trail to the Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge and returning to the start line at the Victoria Health Centre. The 2k snowshoe run will occur along the same trail system but beside the actual trail. Snowshoe participants are responsible for their own snowshoes.

Registration is $15 plus taxes and service fees per person. The first 150 registrants will receive a branded Winter Buff (no medals). An after-run Hot Chocolate reception for all participants will be held at the Delta Marriott Fredericton. Race-kit pick up will be held Thursday, January 30 and Friday, January 31 at the Running Room location at Kings Place Mall.

Started in 1982 by Paul Lavoie, the Frozen Nose and Toes Run was an annual February four mile run held in New Maryland. In 1998, Frozen Nose and Toes relocated to Fredericton where Lavoie continued the race for a few years until the Capital City Road Runners took it over for a few more years.

In 2019, the Fredericton Marathon rekindled the event with a 4k Fun Run or a 2k snowshoe run. This event is capped so register fast!

Registration open now at the Running Room.
