WHO:

snowshoe2Snowshoeing can be done at a modest slower pace power-walk or running very quickly like the efforts you wold see at 5k or 10k race. The PERSONAL BEST BARE BONES WINTER SNOW-SHOE-RUN is perfect for any level and age. Coaches will have "Learn to" days on the property for those who want to improve their skills and fitness. The longer 8k Snowshoe + 4km run is

designed for the person who has a bit more endurance capacity & has likely snowshoed before. The shorter distance race is designed for both the novice person as well as the speedster who likes to go fast!

EQUIPMENT:

Everyone needs to have some warmer clothing. The temperature in February is likely zero or below. Dress warm but in layers.

Snowshoes are obviously required unless you're on a relay team.
We have a number of demo snowshoes available if you don't own some, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to reserve a pair.

DAYS FORMAT:

People on the FAT BIKES will start 5min ahead of the snowshoe participants at 9:25am on the same 8km longer loop. At 9:30am ALL snowshoe participants will begin in one mass start. Everyone does the same initial leg of the course. At a specific place on the course, the 8km snowshoe people and Fat Bike Riders will break-off to do the longer loop. Everyone will end up back to the main lodge (which is the transition zone, finishing line and where food-awards-timing will all occur). The run is a 4km out and back that comes back to the Chalet, where you can warmup, have your post-race hot chocolate, meal and post-race awards.

BARE-BONES:

The feedback from or clients and athletes is that people would prefer a lower priced, bare-bones fun event, rather than a much
more expensive race with lots of swag that drives up the price. Our Barebones event will include a great safe race, park entrance fee, a great post-race meal, post race timing results, and some fun, fast draw prizes for everyone at the finishing line.

ALL AGES:

This event is designed for all ages and all levels. We fully anticipate that a large percentage of the participants in the first year will be newbies who are just learning the great basic skills of snowshoeing.

PRACTICE DAYS:

Join the PB coaches for a fun learning days on January 29th, Feb 5th at Palgrave Conservation Park for a FREE snowshoe lesson and workout at 10:00-12noon.
