2016 RESULTS:

Here are the 5K RESULTS and 10K RESULTS from the 2016 Winterfest 5K and 10K races. This year's race was a trail race due to lack of sufficient snow.

The 8K distance at Winterfest is new this year! The Winterfest snowshoe race is a low-frills events. We will have some light refreshments post-race, but will not be giving awards. The races is open to everyone including those planning on attending the US Snowshoe Association National Championships.

Trail Information

There will be a single course this year (prior years had two distance options). Trails will be mostly groomed. However, we can not be held responsible if it snows Friday or Saturday night and there is no time to groom. In the event there is no or little snow, the race will be run as a trail run.

Race Time

Winterfest 8K snowshoe race begins at 10:00am

If no snow (let's hope that doesn't happen again) this will be a trail run.

Packet pick up will begin at 9:00 am for all races at the Cavalry lodge. PLEASE DO NOT PARK ON THE ROAD IN FRONT OF THE LODGE. Plenty of parking is available at the corner of Pond and Douglas rd.
