Bigfoot Snowshoe Race 2008


January 26, 2008!

Bigfoot Snowshoe Race 2008

I love this race! I love a winter road trip to Traverse City!

Late registration takes place around a roaring fire at the beautiful log lodge at Timber Ridge Resort. The pre race mood is just fun. Usual crowd about 240 entered and 100 rent snowshoes, probably their first time on them, so no excuse, come join us. The learning curve is zero, strap em’ on and run.

The low snowfall downstate always hurts winter tourism in the north. It’s hard to picture that there is snow just 200 miles north. The north woods are like stepping into a fridge, the snow stays through many a thaw, just plan on going now!

The course is a super hilly off trail run with plenty of logs to jump and branches to duck, like a leg of DWD.

There are a handful of very serious shoers at Bigfoot because it the Midwest qualifier for the National Championship Snowshoe race coming up in March. A 5 person U.S. Team goes on from that event to compete at the World Snowshoe Championships. Serious stuff! Mike Decker, of Running Fit Traverse City and previous member of the U.S. Team, will be back to defend his Bigfoot title. Go Mike!

Race Director, Randy Step
