Freezeout Challenge


Freezeout Challenge

January 18th, 2020

10:00am Emmett, Idaho

Event Info

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. Freezeout 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.
