If you are anywhere in downtown Estes Park today you might catch a sight of the 34th Annual Frost Giant 5K/10K. Frost Giant 10K, a well-organized, fun and challenging race is a combination of road and cross country running. Sponsored by the Estes Valley Recreation and Park District the race runs down MacGregor Avenue in Estes Park and on out to the historic MacGregor ranch adjacent to Lumpy Ridge in Rocky Mountain National Park. The off road portion of the race is on trails that run through wide open pastures that showcase stunning range views.
The Estes community and Frost Giant Run lost a dear friend, Katherine Bricker Kent, on July 15, 2000. As one of Northern Colorado’s most prestigious female runners, “Kate” was a multiple winner of Frost Giant Runs, three time Olympic Marathon Qualifying participant, co-founder of Kent Mountain Adventures with husband Harry, and mother to a son, Owen Kent. A portion of the proceeds from the Frost Giant Run will be donated to the Katherine Bricker Kent Memorial Fund and the Estes Valley Youth Activities Assistance Fund.
