Thanks for posting this!!!! I got a pair of racing shoes for Xmas and plan on trying them out this Sunday in Frisco. It will be my 1st snowshoe race and I can't wait. I think I will be able to do 3-5 races off this list. Any more you know of would be great.

Here is a link to some more races: http://www.racingunderground.com/snowindex.html

Thanks!

I sure hope someone (maybe you) will be running this in full Elvis regalia. Old white cape Elvis, of course.

Congrats on kick-starting an event. It's tough, especially on V-day ("Let's go suffer in the cold, honey!").

Good luck and have fun!

I had no idea this existed! I'm not much for snowshoeing but have to respect any reason for people getting some exercise in the mountains. Looks very aerobic. I watched a couple of youtube vids of snowshoe races and I must say I learned some things. And possibly laughed a little.
