Too Cold to Hold 5K

Too Cold to Hold 5K

Posted: Updated:

Going to the zoo and running outside are usually considered warm weather activities, but today, Minot citizens made them work for the cold weather as well.

The "Too Cold To Hold" 5k was held at the Roosevelt Zoo, and runners pushed ahead even with the chilly temps and wind.

This is the 3rd year holding the race, and it's partner is the "Too Hot to Handle" run in August.

And those who came out to be a part of it today, were excited to spend a Saturday in February with their running shoes laced up.

(Connie Feist, Owner of Mile 1 Running Shop) "It's just something to encourage people. Yes, it's cold in North Dakota in the winter, but there are still things to do, you just have to adapt, and you know, a healthy lifestyle should last 12 months out of the year, so we're really happy to just encourage this all year round."

(Randal Cler, Winner of 5K) "It brings the community together, it gives people who say there's nothing to do outside, yes it's a little windy and cold, but there's quite a few people that showed up today and are having a good time."

The "Too Hot To Handle" run will be held in August, and the winner of the North Dakota Elements Challenge will be awarded.
