Frosty 5k race supporting local children with cancer


November 08, 2019

The Joshua Tree children’s cancer charity are hosting the North’s first ever Frosty 5k this winter.

New for winter 2019/20 – Frosty 5k is a family friendly fun run with a chilly theme, from a snow-covered start line, to a sea of waving snowmen and a giant igloo of icicles, this fun winter run has it all, and it’s heading for Marbury Park, Northwich, Cheshire on Saturday 18thNovember.

The Joshua Tree will be the first organisation in the North of the UK to host the event, which is family friendly and features four fun and festive interactive zones. All money raised from the event will go to The Joshua Tree to support families from across North Wales and the North West affected by childhood cancers.

The charity’s Fundraising and Events Co-ordinator, Juliet Brazendale, said: “We’re so excited to be the first to host Frosty 5k in the North.

"If ever there was an event to get you in the fit for the new year, this has got to be it. It’s a fun winter run for all the family, but you can walk, run, hop, dance round the course, which is 2 laps of a 2.5k route, meaning any age can take part!

“With that in mind, we will be giving runners the option of completing one or two laps of a 2.5km circular course, so it’s not too gruelling for little legs!

“Set in the idyllic Marbury Park, runners will be transported into a magical winter wonderland, running through a succession of interactive displays, including a cosy log cabin, a 15m corridor of waving snowmen, an icy fog zone and an 8m Arctic igloo lit up by icicles.

"All are welcome to come along and join in the festive fun while helping us raise funds for families affected by childhood cancers.”
