Race Preview: Snow Lovers Loop Snowshoe Race 3/1/2014 (Odell Lake Resort)

Snow Lovers Loop Snowshoe Race 3/1/2014

Snow Lovers Loop Snowshoe Race 3/1/2014

It is joyous to see so many new snowshoe race events popping up, not only in Oregon, but all over the country. Snowshoeing is a major cardio workout, and, of course, it’s beautiful being out in the snow. On Saturday, March 1, the Nordic trails of Odell Lake Resort will be the sight of the Snow Lovers Loop Snowshoe race. Participants may choose the 4k or 8k distance options. The 4k is one loop on the Nordic trails, and the 8k is two loops. Check out the course map so you may get a glimpse of the lovely sights you will see on the Odell Meadows ski trails.

In it to win it? Sounds like an excellent idea to me, especially with one of the awards being a pair of “run-ready” Dion 121’s with SecureFit bindings and standard cleats. WOW! Awards will be presented to the top male and female finisher in each race distance, as well as the top three in each age group.

Don’t have snowshoes?! Well don’t worry! You may rent them from Odell Lake Resort at a reduced rate. So there – no excuses about not having the right equipment to participate. And, you entry fee includes the pass for using the Nordic trail, and lunch!

Get registered now for this awesome snowshoe race. Registration is available on race day from 9 a.m. to 10:45 a.m., however, I always advise registration in advance for all events. Entry fees are $30 for adults through February 28. Day of race registration add $5. If you are 17 and under or 60 and over, deduct $5.

Day of Race: Saturday, March 1, 2014
Time: 11 a.m. start for both distances (arrive between 9 a.m. and 10: 45 a.m. for same day registration)
Distance: 4k or 8k
Cost: $30 for adults. Add $5 for race day registration. Ages 17 and under or 60 and over deduct $5. A limited amount of gear will be available for purchase, but there is not an option to pre-purchase an event shirt.
