Snowshoeing is one of those activities that I think just about anyone can do regardless of age, size, gender, etc. Not only can it provide an excellent cardio workout, but at the same time, it can also be incredibly exhilarating trekking through forests blanketed in snow.
On Saturday, February 27 at 11AM, Level 32 Racing presents the Snow Lovers Loop Snowshoe Race, which will provide snowshoers with the opportunity to race through the Nordic trails of the Odell Lake Lodge & Resort. Participants may choose between the 4K and 8K distance options. The 4K is one loop on the Nordic trail and the 8K is two loops. Click here for a COURSE MAP.
Awards will be presented to the top male and female finisher and top three in each age group in both the 4K and 8K. A special prize for overall two person 8K relay champions will also be given. An added bonus is the potential to win a pair of “run ready” Dion 121 snowshoes with SecureFit Bindings and Standard Cleats as well as other cool stuff from Odell Lake Lodge.
Don’t have a pair of snowshoes? Don’t fret! Snow shoes can be rented from the Odell Lake Lodge at a reduced rate. Participants of the snowshoe race can also get 10% off accommodations at the Lodge.
Registration can be done in person at Eugene Running Company (116 Oakway Center) through Friday Feb. 26 at 11AM, or on race day from 9:30am to 10:45am. CLICK HERE for a printable entry form. Online registration is also available and open until midnight 2/26/16. Register online HERE.
