    It’s always super cold when this event takes place – and hence the name – but that’s not the fault of the organizers. The cold weather is the only reason I would hesitate to run this race again.

    The swag was an attractive New Balance half-zip and there was the usual free bottle of beer and bowl of chili afterward, along with protein bars, water, and bananas.

    Many good things about this race:
    – course is out and back, but is very flat
    – lots of pace bunnies
    – lots of water/Gatorade stations
    – lots of crowd support
    – indoor heated area for before and after race
    – free and frequent shuttle buses to/from the Appleby GO train station
    – free parking at “Green P” lots close to the start/finish line
    – random prize draws
    – indoor washrooms
    – free bowl of chili and bottle of beer afterward at local restaurants
    – nice swag: a Levelwear tech jacket (see images)
    – the whole town supports this race, e.g. in front of a church on the race route, the Minister and volunteers were handing out orange slices and banana sections
    – big gorgeous medal (see images)
    – heavily discounted entry fee for next year offered to all runners (regular fee is $75, but discounted fee is only $50 if you sign up within 2 days after the race)

    This is a very well organized, fun race.
