The Stone Wall 5K/10K Race follows a well-marked course that is true to the sport of snowshoe racing. The 5K course is designed so anyone can participate, regardless of your ability levels. The 10K course is a true test of endurance, and should be selected only after at least some level of snowshoe training and/or high fitness level. Winter conditions are unpredictable! You may encounter deep snow, bitterly cold temperatures, blizzard-like conditions, logs to jump, limbs to duck, wet conditions, water holes, downed trees, steep up and down hills, snowmobilers, skiers, and wild animals. It could be a bright, blue, clear winter day, or it could be something very different. Be prepared for anything. Regardless of weather, come to enjoy the day with fellow ‘shoers, in a beautiful forest.
The Stone Wall is more than just a race, it is an Experience.
