Thank You!


Thank you for a historic Chilly Challenge!  With higher than ever registration numbers, the 8th annual also brought some fun new elements, including an overnight snow before the race.  It made for a scenic and chilly day, but the real beauty came from all of you being there! We’re glad you joined us.

Interested in Sponsoring?

As word of this unique race continues to spread around the
running community, larger crowds are anticipated each year. Through heavy social media and online
presence, Chilly Challenge will promote your company to thousands of viewers. In addition, be sure to
join us on race day! Most sponsor levels are invited to set up a table at the race affording several hours of
face-to-face promotional time with our community. This gives many opportunities for name recognition
and exposure to our sponsors. Finally, every person that registers for the Chilly Challenge receives a race
tee shirt. These tee shirts, with sponsor names and logos on the back, are a walking advertisement for
years to come as the runners wear them around town.
