The 2018 Jackrabbit Snowshoe Race Series lands at Kissing Bridge North area in Glenwood promising heart pounding snow-packed racing action on Monday nights. On a weekly basis entrants can compete on the short (usually 1-mile) or long (usually 2-3 mile) courses. Courses are typically hardpack groomed and utilize the base area of the resort, a few short climbs & descents. Entrants do not summit the mountain but the courses are not flat. Headlights encouraged since certain sections are darker than others.
Run, walk, as long as you're in snowshoes you're in!
