The race will continue as scheduled for Saturday! However, the temperatures and wind chill are supposed to make for chilly conditions so please use wisdom by dressing warmly in layers and covering all exposed skin. Also, please bring a dry change of clothes to switch into after the race (we will have “heated” changing rooms).We have an extra-large tent with additional heaters this year to ensure you stay warm after the race. Hot food and drinks will also be served to heat you from the inside out. Afterwards, considering using your race bib to gain free admission to the Phillips Community Pool in town (from 1-4PM) to enjoy their hot-tub and other facilities.
Also, if you are doing the 10k race and expect to be on the course longer than 1.5 hours, you may want to consider switching to the 5k to limit your exposure to the elements. We will not enforce any time cut offs, but wish to offer that option for your safety.
Those seeking to qualify for the United States Snowshoe Association National race at the Flurry by completing the 10k race, can now also qualify in the 5k race. Due to the weather forecast, the USSSA will allow its members to qualify by doing either the 5k or 10k (your choice). If you wish to switch distances, you can do so on race day at registration. Both races will still be held as scheduled so pick your preferred distance and get your goals!
