Race Notes: The 8K distance at Winterfest is new this year! The Winterfest snowshoe race is a low-frills events. We will have some light refreshments post-race, but will not be giving awards. The races is open to everyone including those planning on attending the US Snowshoe Association National Championships. There will be a single course this year (prior years had two distance options). Trails will be mostly groomed. However, we can not be held responsible if it snows Friday or Saturday night and there is no time to groom. In the event there is no or little snow, the race will be run as a trail run.
