Photo Gallery: Freeze Your Gizzard Race

The start of the 2021 Freeze Your Gizzard 1-mile fun run.

The Town of Leesburg’s Freeze Your Gizzard race celebrates its 20th anniversary Saturday.

Each year, the event draws hundreds of runners to Ida Lee Park for a 5K cross country race and one-mile fun run. 

Participants bring donations to help restock the Loudoun Hunger Relief food pantry as the nonprofit distributes special holiday meals to area residents in need. 

All pre-registered 5K participants will receive a commemorative long sleeve performance T-shirt. One-mile fun runner will receive a commemorative finishers’ medal.
