Littleton, CO – The Winter Distance Series has partnered with BoldRunning as the official training program of the popular three-race series held each winter in Littleton, Colorado. The fun kicks off in December with the Santa Stampede 5K/10K (formerly Rudolph’s Revenge 5K/10K), followed by the Frosty’s Frozen 5 and 10 Miler in January, and then the Snowman Stampede 5 and 10 Miler in February. Each race offers a party-like atmosphere with flat and fast courses along the banks of the scenic South Platte River.
BoldRunning offers high quality coaching and an intimate group training environment at a great value to members. Members meet among training groups in Littleton, Denver, and Boulder.
Head Coach and elite runner Ewen North has a Masters Degree in Exercise Science, and has coached thousands of runners through coaching with Adams State College, the University of Nebraska, and since 2005 as director of BoldRunning. “Our idea of Winter Training is to help people build or maintain fitness over the holidays while providing motivation through regular racing. The Winter Distance Series falls at perfect intervals on the calendar with this in mind. Training emphasis is on the aerobic side, but our weekly harder workouts keep the pace high enough to enable racing at any time.”
Training schedule co-writer Mark Plaatjes is a world-renowned runner who held the Marathon World Champion title in 1993 and has won over 20 major marathons. Today Mark continues to run non-competitively and is the co-owner of Boulder Running Company as well as being a physical therapist at and owner of In Motion Rehabilitation in Boulder.

About the Winter Distance Series
The Winter Distance Series is a three-race series that is currently celebrating its eighth year. The series begins on December 15 with the Santa Stampede 5K and 10K (formerly the Rudolph’s Revenge 5K and 10K). Next up is Frosty’s Frozen Five and Ten mile races on January 19. The final race is the Snowman Stampede, which offers five and ten mile races on February 16. All three events take place at Hudson Gardens with the shortest race kicking off at 9 a.m. and then longer event starting at 10:30 a.m. Both runners and walkers are welcome. A timed kids run will take place at each event at 10 a.m.
“Last year we welcomed record crowds to the series events,” said Derek Griffiths, race director. “We had more than 1,000 people registered for every race. Currently, registration is on record pace for the eighth year of the series, which means we will be able to make an even bigger impact in the community and through our charity partner, the Fetal Hope Foundation.”
