Congrats to all 365 participants of the Jack Frost Challenge in Manitoba!

This year we saw hundreds of Manitobans get out there and enjoy winter, even with the high winds and those low windchill temperatures. Despite the cold, many Manitobans made the most of it and clocked some serious kilometres with friends, family and coworkers.
