Week 3 of the 2020-21 Dion WMAC Snowshoe Series will run from Sunday 1/10/21 through Saturday 1/16/21.
The goal for this week is to run, walk, or hike at least 4mi (6.5k) 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.)
We had a good turnout at today’s race on the Gore Nordic Center in North Creek, NY with 33 participants out on the snow making multiple loops of the 1 km course. If you were there and want the distance you covered recorded toward your series totals, make sure you enter the information in the series spreadsheet below. (Don’t forget to include any warm-up or cool-down distance – that counts too!)
(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.)
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.

Have fun and be safe!
