Snow-O 2017 (aka Rain-O) / Sunday FEB 12, 12PM – 2PM

Event Description

Join us for a potentially snowy and cold somewhat warm and rainy first event of the year at Camp Manatoc. We’ll feature WHITE and YELLOW (beginner) courses, an ORANGE course (advanced beginner), and GREEN and RED (advanced) courses. The beginner courses will stay near campus, whereas the advanced courses will travel up and around one of the lakes. Beautiful views are guaranteed, and you’ll be sure to stay warm from the typical terrain in Cuyahoga Valley, with lots of up and down, mixed with flatter sections to stretch the legs on.

The ground will be hard from the winter weather, and possibly covered in snow. It will most likely be wet, and a bit muddy. Route choice will be important. Good shoes with as much traction possible would be helpful on any of the courses. Snow shoes are ok, too…

Park in the main parking lot. Join us by the fire before or after the race to talk strategy, or review how you did out in the woods. Treats will be available post-race, including (a first-annual perhaps?) ice cream!
