We are spoilt for choice with regard to races to run, both road and trail races. (look here and here for the race calendar) It is also mid-summer and we are starting races at 6am when the temperature is already 20* celcius.
This is not the case for Adam, The Boring Runner. There aren't many races for him to choose from and it is very cold in the northern hemisphere. He is therefore hosting the 2nd Freeze Your Thorns Off 5km race. I ran this virtual race last year (report here) and I have signed up again this year. You can too, just visit this link.
