Winter is not a season to dread, it is a season to embrace. 2022 will be the best snowshoe season Winona has ever offered. If you have yet to experience a Winona Winter, wait no longer.
Presenting…...Winona’s 2022 Snowshoe Season !
1/9/2022 - The Norway 5K
This season “kick off” is a great first race of the season. Built in summer 2021, the Norway trail will become an instant favorite. With scenic overlooks, massive stone walls, and rolling terrain, this single track route is a perfect “first race” of the season. Treat it as a training run for the upcoming Stone Wall. All single track, no major climbs. You must register by December 9 to receive a commemorative Norway5K wine glass.
1/23/2022 - The Stone Wall 5K/10K
Coined as the NorthEast’s signature snowshoe event, The Stone Wall is back to full capacity this season. With a mass start of well over 100 snowshoers, embarking on one of the most relentless snowshoe courses anywhere in the world, this unforgettable race is certain to bring great joy and relentless pain to you all. Best quote to date “It's like death by a thousand cuts”. While I encourage all to experience the 10K course, (closer to 11K) the 5K may be the best option for many. A small change to the 10K course this year will add an element of surprise. Start building your stamina now. You must register by December 19 to receive the commemorative 2022 Stone Wall Pom Beanie.
2/20/22 - The Orange Course
One of the favorite marathon courses of 2021, the Orange offers a great mix of trails and terrain, finishing on everyone’s favorite, Jimmy’s Jaunt. Distance of about 3.65 miles, this event closed out in less than an hour last year. No limit this year, let's pack this course! You must register by January 15 to receive commemorative Orange Course swag.
12/25 - 2/20 The Winona Snowshoe Marathon
The Winona Snowshoe Marathon is back by popular demand. Spend the day, or the winter, snowshoeing 26.2 miles and 6 different courses across Winona Forest. Sign up for the marathon and you are automatically registered for Winona’s 3 live snowshoe race events. Complete the 3 additional well marked courses on your own. All marathon finisher’s will receive the prestigious 2022 Winona Snowshoe Marathon finisher's medal.Please register by December 19, I need to place order on 12/20 to hand out at the Orange Course Race.
