Thank you to everyone for coming to the race and braving the cold weather! Results here. Next year we will likely change the race to a flash registration event. We'll select a couple possible race dates, and 3 days before we'll decide if good snow and temps, and then open registration. This is the most sure way we can beat a bad winter and grow the race to 200+ again.

One mass start will be after the last ski wave going opposite direction over start line, and finish will be at adjoining finish line to the ski finish to utilize chip timing. Those doing 11 km will do two laps lapping before heading across the finish. Part of the Braveheart Snowshoe Series.

Sorry no refunds or name transfers. We are in MN which means the weather can change drastically last minute, and director holds right to postpone or cancel race due to lack of snow and/or extreme weather circumstances if changes do occur. This decision can be made any time leading up to the race. Snowshoe race is dependent on ski trail conditions. If we can't hold the ski race the snowshoe race won't happen. We will use our best judgement to ensure a great experience for racers and volunteers.
