About Frosty Looper
Frosty Looper is an 8-hour race held at Cooper River Park on a fast and flat loop that has great views of the Philadelphia skyline and the water. This is one of the fastest timed and looped courses in the country, and a great course to set a PR or run your first ultra.
Registration is opening on 1/22/23.
This is a 3.75ish mile loop on a paved running trail around a river. Mostly flat course with some gradual incline and 2 real hills.
2023 Double Looper Challenge
If you take on both Loopy Looper and Frosty Looper in 2023 you'll be taking home a special edition hybrid medal (2022 medal in photos above).
Runners will have the hours of 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM to run as many laps of the 3.75ish mile loop around Cooper River Park as you want. Partial laps will not be counted, no new laps will be allowed to start as of 3:30 PM, and all loops MUST be completed by 3:59 PM for mileage to count.
This rule requires some level of strategizing for the runners.

Aid Stations & Pit
At the Start/Finish area at the stadium, there will be a drop/pit area for you to stash your stuff for the day. We ask that you do not bring any tents larger than 10x10! NO TENT STAKES are allowed. Please plan to weigh your tent down if you bring one.
There will be a food aid station and a hydration station at the start/finish, and this will be the only aid station. There will be nothing at the mid-point. Food like sandwiches will be made to order, and yes this will slow you down. Plan for that.
Otherwise, we plan on having a variety of snacks available, soup, quesadillas, hot water, and more
The official drink of Frosty Looper is Tailwind Nutrition! We will have Tailwind in the coolers ready to keep you running all day long.
THIS IS A CUPLESS RACE. This means we do not plan to have a ton of plastic cups for you waiting at the aid stations. Please plan to bring a bladder/pack, water bottle, or reusable cup to use for the day.
You have two options for packet pick-up:
