A popular pair of races in Fletcher that start and finish at the Lelia Patterson Center, a great venue with plenty of indoor space to keep warm if the temperatures get all “February” on us. The Frostbite 10k is part of the Asheville Track Club Grand Prix Series as is the Valentine 5k which is held the day before this race. I’m sure more than a few of you Grand Prix fanatics will double up on this weekend. It’s been a few years since I’ve done the 5k, but I did the 10k last year and the new course introduced last year is quite challenging.
