2021 Ice Breaker going virtual

The 2021 Ice Breaker will be a virtual event.

“While Park and Recreation had hoped to hold the 2021 Ice Breaker in-person, we are still in uncertain times. Our community still continues to face the effects of this health crisis,” according to Park and Rec.

The 2020 race was scheduled for April 25 and then rescheduled for Oct. 4 but then canceled due to COVID-19.

“Not wanting to postpone again, we have made the difficult decision to go virtual with the 2021 Ice Breakers Road Race,” according to Park and Rec.
