The Camp Marshall Snowshoe/Fat Bike Race, presented by DION Snowshoes
Saturday evening February 24, 2018 - now under the stars!!
(6:00pm fatbike race, 7:30pm snowshoe race)
We're excited to partner up with the Snowbirds Snowmobile club and Camp Marshall to produce this race. Working with the Camp, the Snowbirds maintain (i.e. create, clear, and groom!) trails over the winter months. As part of this race partnership, a new trail system will be created and dedicated to non-motorized winter recreational activities, such as cross-country skiing, snowshowing, and fatbiking. This will be open the public beyond just race day. A portion of the entry fees will go towards the creation and maintence of these trails.
The 5k loop will be ran for snowshoe race. The course is primarily double wide tracks and fireroads through the trails of the Worcester County 4H at Camp Marshall, but a few sections of flowy singletrack too. We'll have the bumdrums fire pits going all morning too, just in case the crisp winter air puts a chill on you. There is also a warming hut at the main venue too, and great food for after the race!
* In the event where there is not enough snow for snowshoes or fat bikes, we'll change the format of the race to be a trail race and open up the bike race to skinnies. We'll announce this at least 2 days before the race date. We're racing no matter what!
This event is co-sponsored by the Snowbirds Snowmobile Club, Wachusett NEMBA and MRA Multisport.
Come and enjoy a Fun Frigid Family day outside.
