DION Flurry Snowshoe Race
DATE: Saturday, February 15, 2020
LOCATION: Mountsberg Conservation Area, Milton, ON
We're super excited that the great folks at Happy Trails Racing will be
hosting this new race in the DION Ontario Snowshoe Running Series in 2020!
This race is sanctioned by Snowshoe Canada. For more information on
Snowshoe Canada, we encourage you to visit their website at
There will be 4k and 8k distances and the event will be
held at the beautiful Mountsberg Conservation Area in Milton, ON.
This is a great event for not only experienced snowshoe enthusiasts but also for those who would like to give the sport a try for the first time. Most people are able to pick up snowshoe running/hiking very quickly. In fact, the Race Director also tried snowshoe running for the first time at one of the snowshoe races in this series.
We have secured an indoor location to host race-kit pick-up as well as to do post race prizing. One lucky winner will walk away with a new pair of DION snowshoes! We will be providing hot beverages after the event so stick around, enjoy a hot drink, and maybe you will leave with a prize!
All participants will receive a custom printed race mug, which they can use after the race. Race finishers will also receive a pretty awesome finisher medal.
Race Course: The course will take place on a 4km loop. 8km participants will complete the loop twice. Race distances are approximate and the exact distances and race routes will be announced closer to the race. This will depend on the trail conditions as we want to make sure that we offer our participants the best experience possible!
If, in the unlikely chance that there isn't enough snow for snowshoe racing, the race will happen as a trail race and snowshoes won't be necessary.
We have a limited number of Dion Snowshoes available for rent at checkout and we expect our rental pairs to go quickly. We will do our best to announce when the snowshoes are all spoken for. If, when registering, you are able to reserve a pair, that means there are still snowshoes available.
DION ONTARIO SNOWSHOE RUNNING SERIES:
Note: Only the 8km race will count towards points for the DION Ontario Snowshoe Running Series. Each racers top three finishes will count towards the series with the lowest point total being declared the winner. The first place male and female winner of the Dion Ontario Snowshoe Running Series will each win a pair of top-of-the-line Dion running snowshoes at the conclusion of the series. We will also be randomly drawing for a free pair of Dion Snowshoes and additional prizes at each race in the Dion Ontario Snowshoe Running Series. You must be at awards ceremony to win!
