The race venue will be mostly outside, though there will be shelter from the elements and limited warming areas. Be sure to dress warm and bring dry clothes for after the race. We will have a campfire to cozy up to as well (please bring your own camp chair). There will be portable toilets on site.
Free parking is available at the race site, but space is limited. Please car pool if possible.
If you don’t own a pair of snowshoes, we have a limited number of Dion Snowshoes for rent, and are available on a first come, first serve basis when you register online, so register early! Rental fee is $10/race . Other snowshoes may be available for rental at various Kingston and area outdoor stores.
In the unlikely event of no snow, the race will still take place as a trail run (without snowshoes). If held as a trail run, it is YOUR responsibility to make sure that you have suitable traction devices that are safe for you to run in, especially if there is ice on the course. Recommended traction devices include Kahtoola MicroSpikes or NanoSpikes, or you can make your own pair of screw shoes very inexpensively.
EARLY ENTRY FEE: $35.00 (Before Jan 11, 2020)
REGULAR ENTRY FEE: $45.00 (Jan 12 – Feb 20, 2020)
LATE ENTRY FEE: $55.00 (Race day)
