Saturday you have a choice –

The Brave the Blizzard 5k will be held at Tawasentha Park in Guilderland, with race start at 10 AM. This year there will once again only be one distance and it will be within the park (no golf course.) The likelihood is a trail race with traction assistance highly recommended, but bring snowshoes just in case Tawasentha surprises us with a little winter magic. Cost is $20, online registration or day of.

The Frigus 5k/15k/marathon will be held at Moreau Lake State Park in Gansevoort. They’re reporting good snow conditions as of yesterday when the 5k course was marked. Check the race info page for early packet pickup and day-of check-in, which will also include last minute registrations. Race start is at 8 AM.

Sunday there’s only one set of races, the Stone Bridge Caveman 6k & 15k EXTREME at Natural Stone Bridge & Caves Park in Pottersville, NY, with race start at 10:30 AM. Register online beforehand or day of that morning. The RD reported in this evening and said the conditions are the best they’ve ever been, so Sunday is definitely a snowshoe race.

Looking ahead to Tuesday 2/18, Gore Nordic Citizens’ Race #6 is a part of our series. I’ll post more details for that race on Sunday.
