Information for 2021 Race
Saturday, January 16th through 31st, 2021
In order to continue this great annual tradition, the International Falls Area Chamber of Commerce has turned the 2021 FYGBR into a 100% VIRTUAL race!
Why Virtual? We didn't want to cancel the race for the first time in its 40-year history, but did not see a path to safely gather hundreds of runners together at this time. FYGBR is an important tradition and fundraiser for our Chamber, and a virtual event felt like the right decision. With your support of this year's virtual race, we hope to again see everyone together in January 2022!
So, whether you’re in International Falls, Minneapolis, Montreal or Mozambique – you can participate in the Icebox of the Nation’s infamous Freeze Yer Gizzard Blizzard Race! Plus, you’ll get a super cool race shirt to commemorate it and impress your friends!
Are YOU bold enough to (virtually) run the cold?!
** No in-person, onsite events will take place in Int’l Falls. The Icebox Days Festival has been cancelled for 2021. **
