Pick up your race package on Saturday, February 11 from 9am-9:45am at the Information Tent beside the Silver Skate Festival archway by Main Parking lot.

Snowshoe Canada Raquette

This classic Canadian pastime is now the fastest-growing winter sport. To host an amazing race, the Silver Skate Festival has partnered with Snowshoe Canada, the national governing body for the sport of snowshoeing, as well as Monika Owczarek, Canadian snowshoe running Champion and President of the World Snowshoe Federation.

Snowshoeing is for the whole family and anyone can do it.  If you can run/walk, you can snowshoe run or walk.

Come and join us for a fun day and participate at one of two distances in Hawrelak Park, the 1km family run/walk or the 5km race.

Did you know that snowshoeing burns more calories than jogging on the road? It’s a great way to spend time with family, or get a fantastic workout. Many athletes snowshoe run as cross-training to stay fit in the winter. Come check out why so many individuals are getting into this fun sport.

The 1km is ideal for kids and families. Last year, the race had a number of families participate and we are offering family registration in 2017! If you are looking for a challenge, the 5km run is a definite must try for an amazing winter workout.
