Week 5 of the 2020-21 Dion WMAC Snowshoe Series will run from Sunday 1/24/21 through Saturday 1/30/21.

The goal for this week is to run, walk, or hike at least 5mi (8k) with or without snowshoes. You can do the distance all at once or split it up over multiple outings. You can also do more distance if you’d like (or less if you’re not up to 4mi at this time.)

If you’d like any distance you cover on foot (with snowshoes or without) to be included in your totals for this seasons series, please enter it in the series spreadsheet:

2020-21 Snowshoe Series

(If this is the first time you’re recording distance, enter your first and last name in the appropriate columns. For each week you will also find two other columns – under “week # ss miles” enter the number of miles you’ve snowshoed, and/or under “week # r/w/h miles” enter the number of miles you’ve run, walked, or hiked without snowshoes. You can do this once for the whole week or update your weekly mileage as needed throughout the week. You can also go back and update your totals for previous weeks at any point. The spreadsheet will update your series totals automatically.)

No races next Saturday, but there is a Citizen’s Race at the Gore Ski Bowl on Wednesday evening (1, 2, 3,or 4 loops, up to 5k-ish distance, season pass or $12 twilight pass required) and a free race at Cole’s Woods on Thursday evening (1 or 2 laps, up to 4k distance.)

Of course you are always welcome to snowshoe/run/walk/hike at a location of your choice. We only ask that you choose a location where you can do so safely and while following all local rules, regulations, and guidelines, and that you take appropriate precautions to limit the spread of Covid-19. We miss seeing you all in person and want to get back to being able to do that!

If you have any photos from your outdoor adventures, please feel free to share them with us on our Facebook group by leaving them in a comment for this week’s post.
