2022 Freeze Your Buns 5K Series

FYB is a great fun winter running series for runners of all abilities. Run on relatively flat, low-traffic roads, the series is beginner friendly. If you’re just starting out running for the new year, welcome! If you’re a seasoned runner, welcome back!

WE ARE BACK IN PERSON for 2022! To make this easier for those who aren’t comfortable running in a group, we will also be offering a virtual option* for competing in the 2022 FYB Race Series, just as we did for the Mine Falls Summer Trail Series. Our price will be unchanged from prior years, $20 for the series ($12 for the series for age 17 and younger).

For in-person runners, the race will start promptly at 9AM on the road between Conway Arena and the Nashua YMCA. As in years past, we will be using the lobby of Conway Arena to warm up before or after the race. For virtual runners, times are due on the Monday following the scheduled race.

Note that in the event of inclement weather, we will be cancelling the in-person race, but the race will take place virtually. While many of us would run in the snow just for the fun of it, the city has asked us not to run the race if it will interfere with snow removal operations at Nashua High School South. In this event, we will announce that that week’s race will be fully virtual. We will not be running any make-up dates for canceled in-person races this year.

* To ensure fair competition, CHAMPIONSHIP POINTS WILL ONLY BE AWARDED FOR IN PERSON RACING
* Times are due the Monday after each scheduled race. Run at any time over the weekend up to end of day on Monday. Run wherever you can.
