The first annual Melty Mile Race will be held Sunday, March 10, at the Ridgefield Recreation Center.

This event, which caps off the end of Ridgefield Running Company’s Frozen Feet Streak Challenge, invites the entire community to run or walk the one-mile paved trail around the Recreation Center to celebrate the completion of the Challenge, the time change and the beginning of the spring thaw. Participants can race the fast, flat one-mile course or walk, and the race is open to all ages.

“We can’t wait for spring! The Frozen Feet Streak Challenge participants have already been running or walking at least one-mile everyday through ice storms and inclement weather. The Melty Mile Race on the Ridgefield Recreation Center’s trails is fun way to say good-bye to winter, and hello to spring,” said Ridgefield Running Company’s owner, Megan Searfoss.

Registration for The Melty Mile is just $10 and is available now at ridgefieldrunning.com/events. The event will start at 8:00 a.m. at the soccer field at the Ridgefield Recreation Center. Every finisher will receive a special “hot chocolate spoon” from Deborah Ann’s Sweet Shoppe.
