This year's race will be part of an entire weekend featuring "The Ice Man" Wim Hof!
This year, the JWB Resiliency 5k and 1 Mile Family Fun Run/Walk is proud and excited to host extreme athlete and motivator, Wim Hof “The Iceman.” As our Celebrity MC along with Lynne Brick, Wim will lead a limited signature Wim Hof Experience (WHX) on Saturday, October 13th from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm for the FIRST 100 registrants to this event. At the WHX he will take people through his Wim Hof Method (WHM) of deep breathing exercises, where he will get people to hold their breath for up to two to three minutes or more, and his cold therapy, in the form of a two-minute ice bath, in an effort to increase their circulation, which will decrease chronic inflammation, which will decrease chronic pain. Participants are encouraged to wear their swimsuits underneath their clothes as well as towels and exercise/yoga mats
*(Registrants must sign up for both the race AND for the WHX separately.)

We are currently funding a two-year, $1.2 million, Gold Standard study to determine how positive stress, in the form of 3 different types of holistic treatments, affect depression.
