Event notes
Snowshoes? That’s right, when winter covers our beloved trails, some of us switch to snowshoes and keep right on running. Racing snowshoes are a far cry from the tennis racket-shaped gear of yesteryear—you strap them on over your normal running shoes to get a stable platform that keeps you on top of the snow. It’s harder than running, but incredible exercise and huge fun to boot. So conquer the cold in the Ithaca area’s only snowshoe race!

The well-marked course is part of the Hammond Hill State Forest trail system, which is commonly used for skiing and snowshoeing, so it should be packed down unless there is a big snowfall the night before. Don’t worry if you don’t have snowshoes, since we’ll have some available to rent for $5 a pair.

We’ll be meeting at the warming hut by the Hammond Hill public parking lot, where a wood fire will be keeping everyone warm(ish) no matter what the weather is like outside. And for a snowshoe race, we’re rooting for cold and snowy! After the race, pile into the warming hut for post-race snacks and beard thawing, and don’t miss the after-party at the Dryden Hotel.
