To Do: Fireside Frostbite 5-Miler in Ambler

The coolest (literally!) race around.

Break out your thickest thermal and  your favorite winter hat because this is going to be a chilly one. The Ambler Area Running Club is calling for the most warm-blooded, chill-seeking, competitive runners to compete in its chip-timed Fireside Frostbite 5-miler.

The run, which takes place on February 16th, starts at Wissahickon High School where participants will tackle a course with rolling hills. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female overall as well as the top three male and female masters. But to earn these prizes, you have to be able to face the snow, sleet, rain, or shine, as the race goes on no matter what. Those who are brave enough to face the elements will be rewarded with post-race food and refreshments provided by the Fireside Bar and Grille. A portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit the Crefeld School. Find out more and register here.

$30, February 16th at 9 a.m., Wissahickon High School, 521 Houston Road, Ambler.

    So happy my fantasy draft is before the Eagles next preseason game. Going to be able to get Vick and Djax nice and late.

    • hnic101nj

      I have the number 1 pick, and im trying to package a deal to get the #2 pick…will most likely be Vick and Shady, or Desean and Vick

    • G_WallyHunter

      ya I’m in a 12-man, hoping I can grab McCoy in 1 and Vick in like 6 7 or 8, don’t know where I’m picking yet. Desean in 5th or 6th would be nice too..

      • ICDogg

        In my 12 man league McCoy got taken 3rd overall, and Vick in the early 7th. Both by an Eagles fan other than myself.

      lol. Can I join this league? Is there money involved? If they are your picks id give you the 1st and 2nd pick for nothing.

      • hnic101nj

        Haha, naw free league and all full. I know i’m being told im crazy for that, but i went with those 2 picks in 2010…won my league pretty easily, and this new offense should get me some decent points….prayerfully..haha

        • Phifer Fuqua

          Dude, no matter how much you like them, blowing a 1st and 2nd round pick on guys you could get five or six rounds later is not a good play

          • Ron Swanson

            Seriously you could get all three of those guys you want plus adrian peterson if you just wait until later to get vick and desean.

    Its Gruvi, Sheil and Tim, and I just want you both to know I just came home with my new Galaxy S4 and this site was its very first bookmark. It shows how much I enjoy reading you guys!

    I think Vick was hurt by what happened last year. A lot of it was his fault with the ball control but that line was atrocious and he went harder than anyone the whole year. Big Red and him were blamed primarily for the stink the Eagles provided and it was warranted but a lot of guys got a pass. Vick and Andy didnt quick and many guys did. I think it hurt Vick that he was blamed more and he never complained or quit. I think his competitiveness, and ego and the fact that Kelly believed and him is going to be cause for some awesome numbers this year. I feel really bad for Maclin because he won’t have a chance to be a part of it

  • Philly0312

    Ditto – I’ve mocked about 10 times, and keep getting Djax in the 6th, which I think is a steal. If he has under 1200 and 8 this year I will be surprised.

  • arson81

    I love it. I hope you are right on the 1200. I really want double digit touchdowns though. 10 TD catches and another 2 rushing and I’d be giddy. I just want him to finally reach his full potential…please!
