After falling in love with the sport of snowshoe running last winter, I noticed a serious lack of snowshoe running events in the KW area. So I thought I would bring a snowshoe running race to Cambridge. Introducing the Dion Winter Goose Chase 6k Snowshoe Race at Shades Mills Conservation area. It is race #4 in the Dion Ontario Snowshoe Running Series . Many people in this area are not familiar with snowshoe racing and may not have racing snowshoes - if this is you, don't worry! we have Dion Racing Snowshoes for rent for the race, but you need register for the race and reserve a pair soon.
Details of the race:
Date: Saturday February 4, 2017
Location: Shades Mills Conservation Area
Official race website: http://healthandadventure.com/races/dion-winter-goose-chase-snowshoe-race/
Registration is available through this link: https://www.events.runningroom.com/site/?raceId=13780
All of our rental snowshoes are reserved. You may still register and run the race, but you need to bring your own pair of snowshoes. Sorry for the inconvenience.
If you would rather buy your own pair for Dions, they are sold online through Spafford Health and Adventure.
Dion Winter Goose Chase Registration/Information/kit pick up night - register in person for the race, try out Dion Racing Snowshoes, pick up your race kit early, and come by and say hi.
