1ST RACE IN THE SERIES ONE WEEK AWAY

The first race in the 2017-18 series will be next Saturday 12/16 at the Gore Ski Bowl in North Creek, NY. Online registration is now open and will remain live until Friday 12/15; day-of registration will also be available. The race information page is up-to-date with the most recent info as of 12/10/2017.

The race on Sunday 12/17 at Capital Hills in Albany, NY is not looking positive – no snow at the moment with very little in the forecast. Stay tuned for whether or not that one will be happening.

EARLY SEASON RACE THIS SATURDAY AT PAUL SMITHS VIC

Saturday 12/9 is the first non-series race of the season for anyone wanting to get in a practice run for next weekend’s series opener at the Gore Ski Bowl. The 24th Annual Jingle Bell 5k will be held at the Paul Smiths VIC, and the latest from RD Jim Tucker is that they have 5″-9″ on fresh snow, and the 5k loop will be groomed by race time tomorrow.

THATS A WRAP, FOLKS!

The 2016-17 Dion WMAC Snowshoes Series wrapped up today with a cold, windy finale featuring more ice-covered terrain than I ever want to run/walk on snowshoes ever again.
 
Results from the 10k are available on coolrunning.com and will be available here (with series points) soon, as will results for the 5k and the overall results for the series.
 
Keep an eye out here for a few more items to close out the season – and of course for those of you who can’t get enough of snowshoe racing, there is still the National Championships in Bend OR in two weeks.
