Westfield Welcome’s ninth annual Melt the Trail 5K, presented by Riverview Health, returns at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 25 at Grand Junction Brewing Company, 1189 E. 181st St., Westfield.

“Each year, we continue to build our trail network, and this winter tradition reminds residents that our trails are a year-round amenity,” Mayor Andy Cook said. “While each year can bring different weather conditions, we know that runners are willing to brave the elements.”

Westfield Welcome continues to partner with Grand Junction Brewing Company to host the race festivities. After the race, participants can redeem their drink tickets, purchase food, and enjoy music and arcade games. The taproom is kid and dog friendly, allowing the entire family to join.

The registration cost is $35 and will increase to $40 on Feb. 11. To guarantee a Melt the Trail long-sleeve shirt, the registration deadline is Feb. 6. Packet pickup will be from 4 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 23 at Riverview Health Westfield Hospital, 17600 Shamrock Blvd., and on race morning at Grand Junction Brewing Co.
