2019 Snowshoe Race Schedule for New Hampshire, Southern Maine and Vermont
It's the most wonderful time of the year...if you're into snowshoe running...and if there's snow. If there's no snow then it's frustrating to be both a snowshoe runner and a snowshoe race director. Last season turned into a heartbreaker with very little snow and many canceled races. But with snow falling and sticking around, the 2019 snowshoe racing season is looking like a solid bet.
I’ve done my best to compile a list of all the snowshoe races taking place in New Hampshire as well as some in Southern Maine and a few in Vermont. There are also several multi-sport series that include ice-cleat and snowshoes divisions, like Winter Wild and the Packed Powder Series. While these aren’t exclusive snowshoe races, you can still participate in a timed event and race other snowshoers.
