Registration takes place around a roaring fire at the beautiful log lodge at Timber Ridge Resort. The pre race mood is just fun. Usual crowd about 500 entered and 100 rent snowshoes, probably their first time on them, so no excuse, come join us. The learning curve is zero, strap em’ on and run. The course is a super hilly off trail run with plenty of logs to jump and branches to duck, like a leg of Dances with Dirt! There are a handful of very serious shoers at Bigfoot because it’s the Midwest qualifier for the National Championship Snowshoe race coming up in February. A 5 person U.S. Team goes on from that event to compete at the World Snowshoe Championships. Serious stuff!
