Race Preview: 2019 Snow Lovers Loop (Crescent)

If you are a lover of snow, check out the Snow Lovers Loop snowshoe race at Odell Lake Lodge and Resort. Held on Valentine’s Day weekend, this is the perfect active get-away weekend for friends or lovers! Choose to snowshoe a 5K or 8K distance or team up for the 8K 2 person relay. (Note: while the logo indicates this includes a 4K, the website has the distance listed as a 5k.)

Since this race is dependent on snow, it will be held only if there is adequate snow at this location . . . so, think snow! The snowshoe race is run on the Nordic trails of Odell Lake Resort and is on National Forest Land by special use permit. And, good news – If you don’t have snowshoes, you can rent them at the lodge at a special reduced rate!

There will be age group awards and a special prize for the 8K relay overall winners. There is mention of some snazzy new snowshoes being given away at this event in addition to some other great prizes.

If you’ve never done a snowshoe race before, this is a great chance to try it out at a fairly short distance. So, make plans now to head over to Crescent for a fun winter activity! February will be here before you know it.
