Race Preview: 2018 Snow Lovers Loop Snowshoe Race (Odell Lake)

Hosted by Level 32 Racing, the Snow Lovers Loop 4k and 8k snowshoeing events will be held on Saturday, February 17, 2018 at Odell Lake. If you’ve ever tried to run in your snowshoes, you know it’s beautiful and challenging (pro tip: waterproof pants are a terrible idea. You’ll roast.). Otherwise, it’s such a fun way to combine running + snow!

The 4K event is one loop and the 8K is two loops on the nordic trails of Odell Lake Resort. You can click here for a course map.

Awards will be presented to the top male and female finisher and top three in each age group for both events, as well as a special prize for overall two-person 8K relay champions. Once again, a pair of run-ready Dion 121 snowshoes with SecureFit Bindings and Standard Cleats will be awarded, courtesy of Odell Lake Resort!

Participants of the event will receive 10% off accommodations at the Lodge, as well as reduced rates on snowshoe rentals, if needed.
