The course is a snowy jaunt through the woods with plenty of logs to jump and branches to duck! Gather pre-race in the cozy Timber Ridge Nordic Center around a roaring fire, and stick around post race to warm up with a bowl of chili. Thank you to Chef George Twine for providing the chili.
What if there is no snow??
WHAT? It would be the first time if there wasn't. There will be snow … but, if there isn’t, YOU WILL BE PART OF HISTORY, RUNNING A SNOWSHOE RACE IN YOUR RUNNING SHOES. I love this race! I love a winter road trip to Traverse City!
If there's no snow, bring your trail shoes, the race goes on no matter what the conditions! How cool is that!
**There will be an elite corral option at the start for particpants who expect to snowshoe sub 30 minutes in the 5K and sub 60 minutes in the 10K.
