Frosty 5K & Mitten Mile
In the past, this event was held out at Sim Oaks Golf course. However, the city is selling/sold that property so the run is moving to a new location!
Our NEW location could be, quite possibly, one of the most enchanting paths in Elkhart. Who knew??? Formerly private land, the path leads from Studebaker park, alongside the river to the Elkhart Environmental Center and back. The 5K course is an out and back on a smooth fire trail-type path. The Mitten Mile is a loop course that explores a small island area! Perfect for younger children and walkers!
