YES WE’RE STILL HERE!

… though it would be easy to think otherwise since the slacker web-minion hasn’t updated anything since the middle of March. I’d cut his pay but he’s already working for free…

Laura has been hard at work since August assembling the list of series races for the 2019-20 winter season. What we have so far will be posted very soon.

For those of you interested in competing at Nationals (Leadville CO at the end of February) there are once again qualifying standards to do so. You can find those here or wait for a bit and I’ll post a summary of the most relevant info.

More to come soon!

HEY! WHERE THE #@$% ARE THE UPDATES?

I realize updates (and race results and Laura’s fantastic race reports) have been sorely lacking for the last month. Sorry, work (the place that pays me so that I supposedly have the ability to do stuff like this in my free time) has been a time-consuming monster and has had to take priority. But – we are currently on our spring break so I should have some time to get the 2019 results and reports up to date, as well as totalling points and declaring our 2018-19 series champs. Stay tuned!

ANOTHER DOUBLE-HEADER AS THE SEASON RACES TO A CLOSE….

Saturday – The Endurance Society’s FRIGUS snowshoe races – 5k, 15k, and marathon distances. The RD reports that snow conditions are great and that race day registration will be available.  Race info can be found here and on Facebook.

Sunday – The 3rd oldest race in our current points series, Brave the Blizzard, once again returns to Tawasentha Park in Guilderland. The weather forecast suggest this may be a very messy trail race – I’ll post the definite call once it’s made – and the race update earlier this week indicated that only the 5k would be happening. Both online and day-of registrations available. Lots more info can be found here (the official site has not yet been updated with the 5k only information.)

STONE BRIDGE CAVEMAN 6k/15k EXTREME SNOWSHOE RACES THIS SATURDAY

Only one series race this weekend, the Stone Bridge Caveman races at Natural Stone Bridge & Caves Park in Pottersville NY – though past participants will attest that doesn’t mean your in for an easy weekend. Both courses feature plenty of southern Adirondack hills, with the 15k EXTREME course providing a formidable challenge for even the hardiest snowshoer. Course conditions are currently excellent and the forecast is calling for perfect weather Saturday morning. More information, including online registration for the 6k & 15k, can be found here.
