It looks like it’s going to be a GREAT weekend for our 2nd series race, the Hilltop Orchards 5k. The weather forecast looks good and the snow we’ve been getting should provide ideal course conditions.
The race starts at 1 PM, with registration from noon to 12:45. $15 gets you a chance to play in the snow and afterwards a cider donut and wine tasting. More information is available here on the event page (which includes links to google maps for directions if you need them.)
If you need snowshoes, there should be a limited number of Dion loaners available for $5/pair.
Arrive early so you’ll have plenty of time to get signed up (or checked in, if you pre-registered back for the original date), get loaners if you need them, and decide what clothing the conditions warrant. Carpool when possible (it makes parking easier and is good for the environment) and bring a change of clothes for afterwards.
And most importantly – enjoy whatever the course and conditions send your way and have fun!

A Few Updates…

  • Hilltop Orchards 5k has been rescheduled for Sunday 1/1 at 1 PM.

    We recognize that this might conflict with other New Year’s Day events but the forecast for Sunday is much better than the one for Monday. Day of registration will be $15, no need to prereg. If anything changes as the day gets closer we’ll post it here and on Facebook.

  • Updated information is available for the Get Rec’d 5k+ on Sunday 1/8 and Curly’s Record Run on Sunday 1/29. Both are day-of registration only.

It looks like we’ll be getting some snow as we head toward the New Year – let’s hope that keeps up as snowshoe season picks up pace!

Race Calendar for Non-Series Events

We now have a listing of many of the other (non-series) snowshoe and related races in the northeastern US. Please be aware the race information was accurate when the list was assembled but may change as the season progresses; ALWAYS check with the race website and/or RD for the most up-to-date information.

If you know of a race that’s not on the list, or if you spot an error, send the info along and I’ll take care of it.

Race listing is available here or follow the link on the left sidebar under “non-series races”.

P.S. I’m hoping to have an actual events calendar with all of these plus our series races on the site soon… just need to time to assemble the thing.
