10:00am Emmett, Idaho
The Course starts and finishes at the Gem County Fairgrounds, in Emmett Idaho. It should be cold, it should be hard, but it should be great! Beat old man winter, or Mr. Feezeout by taking on the challenge of both the environment and the hill. The loop course is a 12K just slightly over seven miles, and the short course (no Freezeout Hill) is just under four miles. Both courses are challenging but they are great runs for training for other events and for trail running. While on the county roads in Emmett the course will “Follow the Rules of the Road” running on the right with traffic, however the roads used aren’t very populated nor busy, and Old Freezeout will be closed to the public.

The Freezeout Challenge is a Fundraiser for the Emmett Baseball Association. The Emmett Baseball Association not only manages funding for the Summer and Fall Emmett Legion Baseball programs, but it also assists with the management of the Emmett High School baseball programs and individual schalorship/sponsorship opportunities for those who can’t afford to play the game. Previously, The Freezeout Challenge monies have purchased bats, helmets and catchers gear for the EHS Huskies Junior Varsity baseball team, Uniforms for the Emmett Blue Angel Junior Legion Team, Catchers Gear and Bats for the Emmett Blue Angel Junior Legion team, provided baseballs for all four teams in the program, and has given money to the general fund that helped to purchase the new EHS/EBA scoreboard at Pat Daniels Field on the Emmett High School Campus, replacing the 30 year old scoreboard that quit working in May of 2015.
