If getting (or staying) in shape is one of your New Year’s resolutions, don’t miss the 35th annual Frosty 5K New Year’s Day race hosted by the Guilford Rotary Club. The event includes a certified 5K run, 2-mile health walk, and a Kids Fun Run, which all begin on the historic Guilford Green. The course will take you past many iconic sights in this celebrated coastal New England town – the green, marina, and fairgrounds.
A post-race celebration at the Community Center, with food and beverages, music, and an awards ceremony, rounds out an event that is ranked among the highest state-wide in participant reviews.
