… all of you who participated in any of our 16 races (some of which had two or even three distances to choose from) this season. We had 431 finishers between all of the races, which is pretty impressive considering how feeble winter was at times and how many races and activities there are to choose from. Thank you for choosing to spend some time with our crazy crew.
Actually, you’re a winner if you got outdoors this winter, even if you didn’t do one of our races, rather than vegetating indoors for the last four months.
Every entry into a series races counts as an entry into the series raffle run by Dion Snowshoes. There are two raffle winners, each getting a Dion logo piece of apparel. Our congratulations to Kathy Furlani (Hoot Toot & Whistle) and Jim Rucker (Garnet Hill). Please contact Bob Dion to make arrangements to claim your prizes.
The series champions are determined by the top combined points for their best six races. Each gets their choice of a complete set of Dion snowshoes. Not a lot of folks did six races this season, so the qualifying field was small, but our two champions definitely stand out. Congratulations to Stephan Fowlkes (527.9 pts) and Christine Natalie (524.1 pts) for being named 2019-20 Dion WMAC Snowshoe Series Champions! Please contact Bob Dion to make arrangements to claim your prizes.
I’d also like to mention two individuals who I think set the record for most series races run this season – Matt Miczek and Laura Clark, who each ran 12 races. They also attended all six of the Tuesday evening Gore Nordic Citizens’ Races, completed the Merck Ultra 25k, and spent countless hours on the trails at Saratoga Spa State Park & the Wilton Wildlife Preserve getting things ready for the two Saratoga snowshoe races. We don’t have awards for the most miles/hours spent on snowshoes, but if we did they would go to Matt and Laura.
There are still a few more updates to post before we go into snowshoe hibernation until fall – stay tuned.
