A fun 5k in the midst of February! For crazy runners who are willing to face 10-degree temperatures and 30-mph gusts off Lake Michigan. Can you handle it?

  • 5K - Run or Walk!
  • Snow or Shine!
  • All ages welcome!
  • $20 Pre-Registered Race Fee (Pre-Registration guarantees event shirt)!
  • Proceeds support local nonprofits supporting H20 & community efforts!!!

The course starts at the top of Elberta’s beautiful lookout of Lake Michigan and continues down the hill through Elberta, around the bend, along Betsie Bay via scenic M-22, then heads into Frankfort at Main Street, with a finish at the other end of downtown, just before you reach the lighthouse.

This year, proceeds from the 10th Annual Betsie Bay Frozen 5K will focus on supporting local and global community-focused projects!

Race-day registration will take place on Saturday, February 15, from 8:30-9:30am at the American Legion Hall (VFW), 206 Main Street, Frankfort, MI 49635. Restrooms, coffee, and heat will be available for runners during registration and also after the race during an award ceremony.

Bussing will be provided to the start line, following the 5k route (backwards of course - sorry no dogs allowed on bus). If you can find a ride to the start please do, as bus space is VERY limited. There is limited parking at the start line.

Please contact BetsieBayFrozen5k@gmail.com with any questions.

P.S. This race was formed and remains a fun something-to-do for friends on a Saturday in February. Proceed with a smile. It's also been known to be dog-friendly for friendly dogs.
