Thanks for checking into Freeze Your Fanny! This will be our 31st consecutive year to provide one of the first events of the calendar year for cycling enthusiasts.

Freeze your Fanny is the major fundraiser for East Texas Lightnin’, an independent team of athletes with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We are registered 501-C3 Charity and our athletes participate in Special Olympics Texas events. Please join us for this beautiful East Texas ride and support this very worthwhile cause.

Register early to be guaranteed your long-sleeved t-shirt.

Thanks and we hope to see you on February 2nd!

At this time we have decided to eliminate the 5K and 10K runs and hold them as a separate event at TBA date later in 2019. This decision was made in order to better serve our runners in the Longview area and surrounding communities. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Runners, please be on the lookout for our new and improved event built just for you!
