Mark it down! Saturday, February 1st at 11:00 a.m
As part of FROSTival Fredericton, the Frozen Nose and Toes event is a 4k Fun Run or a 2k snowshoe run on Saturday, Feb. 1 along the city’s riverfront trail system.
“This winter fun run is designed to encourage people of all ages to become physically active through a family-related running activity during the winter,” said Christine Little, Fredericton Marathon co race-director.
The non-chipped time event will start at 11:00 a.m. at the Victoria Health Centre parking lot with 4k participants running along the trail to the Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge and returning to the start line at the Victoria Health Centre. The 2k snowshoe run will occur along the same trail system but beside the actual trail. Snowshoe participants are responsible for their own snowshoes.
Registration is $15 plus taxes and service fees per person. The first 150 registrants will receive a branded Winter Buff (no medals). An after-run Hot Chocolate reception for all participants will be held at the Delta Marriott Fredericton. Race-kit pick up will be held Thursday, January 30 and Friday, January 31 at the Running Room location at Kings Place Mall.
Started in 1982 by Paul Lavoie, the Frozen Nose and Toes Run was an annual February four mile run held in New Maryland. In 1998, Frozen Nose and Toes relocated to Fredericton where Lavoie continued the race for a few years until the Capital City Road Runners took it over for a few more years.
In 2019, the Fredericton Marathon rekindled the event with a 4k Fun Run or a 2k snowshoe run. This event is capped so register fast!

Last year, we raised $9538 so lets try to raise some funds to help our friends and restore dignity.
The Fredericton Homeless Shelters Inc. was established in 1983 by a group of people to provide temporary housing for people who suffered from house fires or other natural disasters with a small mention of the transient population. Its mission is and to some extent has always been to restore human dignity to those who were experiencing homelessness in Fredericton and the surrounding areas. Since then, the Fredericton Homeless Shelters have expanded to three shelters, the Men’s Shelter, Grace House for Women, and Brunswick Home Transitional Housing. Together, the shelters provide temporary housing to over 300 individuals every year.
